The free stroke adjuster is misunderstood by even pro mechanics. If you were to take the lever apart you'd see that it doesn't come in contact with any mineral fluid. This comment thus makes no sense, "Winding it out helps prevent air from getting caught around it."
All it does is push or release on the inside of the brake lever. When you screw it in all the way it shortens the throw of the lever by a few millimetres, and when you unscrew it does the opposite. I agree that it is quite useless, but it has no effect on the bleed procedure.
