: This mode could be selected automatically, because the knob can query/access the type of values of the target it controls.
So, there's no need for a menu-driven NOTCH mode selection. The knob would simply be in the correct mode depending on the target parameter. Either in continous value mode (0..127 or -64..+64) or notch mode (with as many steps as the controlled paramater requires), automatically.
This is possible, useful and required for a proper use of the Combinator knobs with non-continous value parameters.
