Im getting this error Warning: PlaceableUtil.loadPlaceable can only load existing store items, no store item for xml filename
and Placeable '$moddir$ModMap/maps/placeables/mapUS/farmBuildings/farmHouse/farmHouse02.xml' is not allowed to be loaded
and i dont even know what they mean.

It's just what the message says: the storeItem is unknown.
Before usage it must be declared in <storeItems>, either in "modDesc.xml" or the map's storeItems file as defined in the map.xml.

Beneath you should NOT use "$moddir$ModMap/.." anymore. Use "$mapdir$/.." instead.

So after declaring the placeable in the storeItems.xml and the placeables.xml it still is producing the exact same error message... I am trying to put a wood sell point in a map and i have the i3d and xml in the map folder. Only way i can seem to get everything to work is to direct the filepaths to in-game files rather than the files inside the folder. How can you get it to work with the files inside the folder?

Sorry, I'm no clairvoyant and don't know your setup. But I'd guess your path descriptions are wrong.
Assuming your placeable xml and i3d is in map folder "placeables" here example patterns for
- modDesc.xml : <storeItem xmlFilename="placeables/myPlaceable.xml" />
- defaultItems.xml : <item .. filename="$mapdir$/placeables/myPlaceable.xml
- myPlaceable.xml : <filename>placeables/myPlaceable.i3d</filename>

If you need examples download and examine a FS19 modmap from ModHub, like "Estancia Lapacho" or "Ravensberg". The filepath scheme is the same as in FS22.
