I wouldn't think they would design things to go I'm questioning the accuracy of the 275 mm specification.

If 275 mm is inaccurate, and the front forks only travel say 250 mm...then I could raise the lower fender by that 25 mm...

Does that make more sense ?
Hm... above you stated that 275mm is 10 3/16 and you measured 10 9/16 between the fender and the brake line retainer (bracket) at full extension, so you should have 6/16 of clearance with the stock setup right? Again, I am measurement challenged... I measure thrice and cut, well, usually once
