As a rough guide, on 650b wheels running specialized butcher control front and purgatory grid rear, for wet trail conditions, what pressures should I be aiming at for a good starting point?

I would suggest 28 front 30 rear and work out from there. Tubeless allows you to go lower without loss of rolling resistance but more grip. Too low though and the tyre will roll and possibly burp.
