Our "head of officials" is the guru on all topics related to basketball officiating. Maybe this "mechanics guru" is also the guru on all other topics and the OP just didn't say it that way.
I hear ya'.

In our area, the mechanics and rules guru is, ironically I suppose, not the "head of officials" or even the predominant assignor.

Completely unofficial title, but our local association has a designated rules interpreter who also has unofficial or self assigned authority to provide guidance on mechanics.
