Since Adobe changed the presets structure to XML, you can't give settings a value outside it's minimum or maximum value! See FAQ exposure percentage.

Q: How should a percentage be written
A: The "Relative adjustments" plug-ins uses the Lightroom preset mechanism.
The default rule is that a preset of a develop setting should be created with the slider itself.
For all develop settings that have a range from -100 to +100 or more you set the value you want.
However, some develop settings have a smaller range, like Exposure: -5 to +5.
Note: until the introduction of the XML layout of the presets in Lightroom 7.4, the Exposure preset should be written as 10.
When you use the "Relative adjustments" - percent option you might run into the situation that you want to specify a percentage that is greater than the range of the slider in Lightroom.
A: You can manually change the value of an develop tool setting in a preset.
Q: Why should I use option "Check for invalid settings"
A: All Lightroom plug-ins, like this one, use the Lightroom SDK (Software Developing Kit). This is a library of functions a develop can use.
This option checks whether the photo you selected return -999999 and if so activate the thumbnail generation.
Q: What is "Unresponsive script" message
You might run into a message like this one. On Windows and Mac OS-X it might look a little different, but the message is the same: a script, in this case JQuery, takes longer than normal and that's why this message pops up.
Your browser may indicate that the JQuery script is "Unresponsive". This is not the case, but it needs more time to render the report.
You get the options to to "Stop script" and "Continue". You can freely choose either option: stop or continue. Nothing goes wrong and certainly not with your photos, because this concerns your browser and not Lightroom.
Q: How to create a Temperature preset
A: Because the Temperature slider has no zero point we took 25000 as the middle point.
Solution: when you apply a preset relative or with percentage, the plugin will subtract 25000 of the specified value. When applied absolute, like Lightroom, the value specified is used.
Q: How to create a Tint or Temperature only preset
A: Explanation: when creating a preset from the White balance settings, you can only choose to select all White balance settings and not Tint or Temperature separate. It is all or nothing.
The only way to use only Temperature of Tint is to set the other to their default, Temperature to 25000 or Tint to 0 (zero).
