I would think this would be obvious...find a different mechanic. They should be able to adjust it easily OR determine if it's a warranty issue (which has happened w/ those derailleurs).

Don't worry about it, those preload knobs don't 'adjust' anything. You can turn them to the limit and nothing will change.

The Aeolus is the high end wheel and it's hubs are DT 240 internals. The Pro series uses a 3 pawl freehub like the DT 370, the Aeolus uses the star ratchet system.

You now have 'toe overlap'. I have had it on every road and track bike I've ever had. It is no where near as serious as you seem to think it is. Thousands of riders deal with it every day.

Cables don't stretch. Undo the cable and pull it out of the housing, take a look at the housing ends. That's what happens. Check your hanger alignment. Housing length looks fine to me.
