...cut those rafter tails off so the rot doesn’t wick up …. under the roof. (or) ... try to bend sheet metal to cap them and slide that up as far as you can.

I agree with the above.

They should have been treated lumber in the first place and sealed right after they went up. If it is only weathering you can fill and paint. If it is rot you should remove and replace them. Rot only gets worse. (This is the way I was taught)
