You said that most of the factory patches are configured to already peak at -12dBFS - this would imply that the volume of the patch, and the input gain should just be left as they are (default). I suspect I'm missing an important point in your response!

So essentially I'm trying to answer the question - do I need to change the instrument volume, or the input gain (or even both) to get to the reference level?

Thanks again - appreciate you taking the time to help out.

I would adjust with the instrument's master volume, because if for some reason you re-use the patch it will already be saved at the correct level. :-)
