Mercedes 1956+220S

Is anyone familiar with the fuel octane adjustment on the dual Solex carburettors for the six cylinder. It is an adjustment knob just right
of the choke and only turns approximately 180 degrees. I suspect it fine tunes the rich/lean mixture but I've not found any specific literature on it.
