Those are dual pivot brakes and the centering screw is not needed at all. I have many sets of dual pivot calipers and have never bothered with the centering screw for anything

You can center the brakes by hand just by rotating the entire caliper and then tightening the anchor nut and pad clearance can be set by adjusting the cable length at the pinch bolt and refined it with the barrel adjuster.
