Make sure BIOS is up-to-date and you have done an EC reset.
I did when you first said. I was asking if you had these issues

The BIOS is up to date. Has F67.

I don't really use my 4540s that much (should sell it), but I have not noticed the issues you mention.
If you want to provide clear/detailed/step-by-step reproduce steps, I will attempt the same thing here.

Now, it shutted down around 10 %, didn't turn on blinking light, plugged AC in, booted to macOS showed 0 % unplugged the AC jumps to 20 %.

1. Fully charge the ProBook
2. Go to System Information and take a look at the Full Charge capacity. Note the value
3. Unplug the AC, refresh via Command + R, take a look again at Full Charge capacity and it changes. (First thing)
4. Let it die until it turns off (note the battery % at which it turns off)
5. Now, you can't turn it on because of the dead battery.
6. Plug the AC in, turn on the ProBook, and now the battery shows 0 %
7. Unplug the AC and now the battery % should be more, like 15-20 % and also, the Full Charge capacity should be different in System information.

The thing is that I am not sure at all if it's my battery or is just the kext or ACPI which is acting crazy.

Bad idea to run down that low.
Plug it in before the battery fails to power the laptop.
Unlike a real Mac, laptop hacks have hibernation disabled, which prevents auto-hibernate in low battery situations.

1. Fully charge the ProBook
2. Go to System Information and take a look at the Full Charge capacity. Note the value
3. Unplug the AC, refresh via Command + R, take a look again at Full Charge capacity and it changes. (First thing)

I will compare my result here...
But I think your major mistake is the (unreasonable) expectation that the laptop is going to auto-hibernate in low battery...

My expectation was to not shutdown at 10 % maybe at 4-5 % but it never reaches that point. I will monitor the battery % and see other things. I will plug it in at around 20 % and see if I get any jumps in battery %.

10% is close enough that it may shutdown quite soon, depending on what you're doing/devices plugged in/etc.

You didn't install the latest 'beta' ACPI files with beta copy of github project, beta copy of install_acpi.sh.
This can be done by switch to beta branch. Right? If so I'm doing the exact thing.
When I try to install acpi.sh the following error shows:

"Rizis-MacBook-Pro:probook.git rizi$ ./install_acpi.sh install_4x40s

Error: Unknown model, "install_4x40s", specified." (Please see terminal command text output)

So I manually copy/paste using finder but nothing changed. Is there anything I'm missing?
