When people post images or files into a Teams Channel conversation, Teams automatically saves that image or file into the main Files directory for that channel, rather than in a more suitable location like a Chat subfolder.

This must be something people have been asking for, for years: How can we change this? Any Teams channel must look like an absolute burning pile of trash, with screenshots building up in the outermost directory of the Channel's file/folder tree.

Files go into the channel folder, images do not, they are stored outside SharePoint like messages.
