When adjusting the toe wings on these bindings, should they (the toe wings) make contact with the boot?

From the shop practices manual.... looks like the answer is yes, but read it yourself...
The adjustment screws for models
with independent wing adjustments
are located on each side of
the toe piece. Adjust each wing
snugly against the boot sole so
that the boot is centered over the
ski. Fig. A Do not over tighten
Fig. S as it forces the boot
backward, increasing the forward
pressure. When properly adjusted,
the toe contacts the boot sole at
three points: the butt plate and
the low friction inserts in each
(916, S914, S912, S810, S850
Models and their predecessors).
The adjustment screw for models
with simultaneous wing adjustments
is located on the left of the
toe piece. Fig. D By turning this
screw, both toe wings adjust simultaneously.
Adjust the wings
snugly against the boot sole. Do
not over tighten. The toe cup adjustment
is correct when there are
three points of contact: the butt
plate and the low friction inserts
on each wing arm.
Currently only the 914, 916, and
Driver 12 to Driver 16 binding
model features manual toe height
adjustment. Raise the toe by turning
the adjustment screw, located
on top of the toe piece, counterclockwise.
Pull the boot back to
create a gap between the boot
sole and the binding AFD. Adjust
the toe height to create a gap of
not more than 0.5 mm or until the
boot sole just touches the AFD.
You can use a Salomon 0.5 mm
toe height adjustment
gauge this clearance Fig. G-H.
Do not over tighten. (Always recheck
the forward pressure adjustment
after making any toe cup adjustments.)
