2.5 mm is the distance from the top of the body to the bottom of the trem. That is to set the correct height for the knife edge screws

Ok, each of those screws has a knife edge in them. The trem is supposed to sit in those knife edges when you get strings on, and bring it up to tension. The distance between the knife edge and the bottom of the screw edge is probably a mm. So, the screw heads will not sit flush on top of the trem. They are not supposed to.

Be careful with the bridge screws. They need to be perfectly aligned with each other or they will damage the knife edge on the bridge.

The US Tremonti Bridge pickup can be split, but not the neck. Not sure about the SE.
