c-macro-expand and c-macro-preprocessor have been around for quite a
while. c-macro-expand is an interactive autoloaded Lisp function in cmacexp.el
that can be invoked in C mode with C-c C-e or from the menu-bar.  Apparently
this file is not part of cc-mode so perhaps its not being maintained.
c-macro-expand seems quite useful so I'm kind of surprised that, as a C
specialist, you're don't use it/not familiar with it.

If we added the line below to c-macro-preprocessor would it work then for Mac
