I have no idea how achieve this in CalMAN.
To m ,understanding the adjustment points in Sonys are all absolute values, meaning point 20 corresponds to 255. This all depends how your TPG, TV and software is setup (video or pc levels). But giving that the autocal seems to work just fine I don't understand why the manual workflow can't be set properly. Any ideas?

But to answer your question the recommended method is to set Contrast to 100 and then the 20pts line up pretty well. There's some overlap in the middle from 10-15 so be careful and just double check 1 point above and below after each adjustment.
Change contrast back to the default 90 (or whatever you use) after setting grayscale to tune the CMS.
20pt Grayscale Points are (Contrast set to 100):
4.6, 9.6, 15, 19.6, 24.7, 31.5, 34.7, 41, 44.3, 50.7, 54, 60, 66, 69.4, 76, 79, 85.4, 91.3, 94.5, 100
