We are currently running KMS6 on Fedora, and are in the process of recovering from a disaster (terribly corrupt FS) / migrating to a new server.

If I want to start with a fresh install, on a fresh server, am I correct in believing that I can simply copy over the contents of the kerio directory?

According to the Administrator's guide the only config files I need to worry about are users.cfg, and mailserver.cfg - both housed in the kerio directory. Anything else?

Finally, as I understand it, users.cfg and mailserver.cfg should be simple XML files. My users.cfg has quite a few blocks of nonsense text sprinkled in when I open it with Notepad++ in Windows. Should this be cause for concern - keeping in mind that they are coming from a corrupt FS?

Yes, you can overwrite fresh install with original kerio directory as long as the files are not corrupted (look for .bak configuration files if the .cfg are corrupted) and message store directory is on same location.
Don't forget to keep original timestamps on copied files.

Thanks for the tip!

I would have definitely have forgotten to keep the original time stamps.
