Looks like you are correct...

I can make it out in the German manual....(kinda)

The english manual I have doesn't list it and the one on the GM site has an error...

no, that is right, the GM commander could charger lithium metal batteries! it would stop charging when a curtain voltage is met!
it uses delta peak for nicd and NiMH!
Actually, it uses what ever you determine as voltage cutoff, MWR cutoff etc, to protect you packs from over charging. It is basically a safeguard.

If you are charging NiMH then I would use the temp charging method...if you have that feature. But, on the earlier version they did not have the adjustable delta peak.

2c = 2 x capasity. So 2c with 3000 mAH is 6000 mAH.

I believe the guy who sold you this nice charger, now how to gain most speed. So listen to him, if you want speed. But since he's more or less sponsored, you shouldn't expect the longest battery life time by doing this.

If the charger (I dont know it) support peak detection in conjunction with temp detection, just remember to use the probe. This way you have an insurance against cooking.
