I looked and ran the attached GRC file. It does work. I have a question on whether the slider gain is applied before or after the ADC?

You are correct. The N210 has a 6db digital gain. Attached is a GRC
flowgraph that loopsback TX and RX with Basic daguhterboards. You can
see the digital gain slider in action.
The gain parameter in the GRC block is a amalgamation of ADC and RF
frontend gain elements. The API also allows for individual control, but
this level of control is not available in the GRC gain parameter.
