  1. First, using USB sync, you push a number of ebooks (bulk upload, not practical with CC) to the Mars device
  2. After that, you update CC database wirelessly

At that point, wouldn't both USB sync an CC wireless device connection show the same library "sync list/state" when connected with Calibre?

Here goes nothing,

It probably won't do what you want. With one exception, CC ignores files in its reading folders that it didn't put there. The one exception is that a) when you do a wireless connect and b) if the setting "Scan for new books" is set then CC will attempt to add the book to its database. If the book is EPUB then this has a chance of actually working with reasonable performance. The main criteria: that the metadata in the book match the metadata in calibre, especially the UUID.

For anything else CC sends the book back to calibre for analysis. This is significantly slower than just sending the book to CC via the wireless connection.
