I want to change some values in my exim.conf permanently so even when cPanel rebuilds it it'll still have my changed values however I don't want to just chattr +i the file. What files do I need to edit to get at what cPanel uses as its default values?

Go on, have a guess
As SubZero says, you should make those changes in WHM > Exim Configuration Editor > Advanced Mode. You should never chattr any of the exim files as it will break exim the next time it is updated which most likely will affect mail delivery (i.e. it won't deliver).

I can't, the sections I want to edit are greyed out.

If you want to change configuration settings, then if you put them in the first textarea they will override subsequent ones.
