With the blade set high enough and the OP simply holding the workpiece rather than clamping it, I don t see how a kickback could occur, even with the rounded edge to the table.

I don’t understand all of the focus on how the work piece was attached to the incra miter gauge. From all that the OP has told us nothing went wrong on that side of the blade. I assume that his work piece survived its trip past the blade just fine. It is what happened on the other side of the blade that is at issue. That is, what happened to the off cut piece. I don’t see how hand holding the stock to the incra gauge or clamping it to the gauge or attaching it with super glue would have any meaningful effect on the off cut.
