Regarding these tenon slots: On my 2013 RC, they look like Chris P described them. IMHO very annoying as it effectively reduces adhesion and I cannot see where's the benefit of that. In addition to that, Buffet uses some kind of cork tape that is firmly conjoined with its adhesive layer - no chance of peeling it off like double sided tape. It seems like parts of that adhesive push into the groves, and I find there's no way of imitating this characteristic.

I've been very pleased with double sided tape (3M for special applications) that far exceeds the properties of carpet tape (which sucks for clarinet repairs). Today I've glued one tenon cork and while making a very tight connection, it didn't push down or rotate on the tenon. However, the slots are very shallow on the clarinet I repaired.
The tenon corks did rotate a bit on my RC, but after some time, they somehow "set" and stopped moving since then. I cannot say whether the tape now adheres in the depth of the slots too, but it's sufficient either way. Next time, I'll use 2 layers and compress the strip while applying it to the tenon, so that the cork pushes into the groves.

I'm going to try Evostick too, which should arrive today.
