Has anybody tried swapping hex/allen head pole pieces for screw pole pieces in any pups ?

I believe someone has tried that in the past with mixed results. I'll have to see about digging it up. If I recall, swapping the screw piece with the hex would narrow the magnetic field generated by the pickup and change the inductance/resistance a bit. The results would most likely vary from pickup to pickup but would be a worthwhile mod to test out.

I’ve swapped screw types and lengths. Swapping magnets makes far more of a difference.

I agree - I temporarily exchanged the screws in a Bluesbucker with hex screws and did not notice much of a change.
