Note that xfce4-settings is merely and interface to the input layer. It
doesn't do any job by itself, besides indicating that layer how it should be
configured. So any feature request should first be exposed by that input

For the current settings and the rounding, can you check what ends up in the
input layer? You can use the xinput command to look into that. I don't use a
touchpad so I can't really give more details.
