The funny thing is, I have a small cordless trim router. I would say that 95% of the time, it has a 1/8” roundover bit in it. I get it dialed in and it stays set up like that for months.

Every time I have to use a different bit in that particular router, I grumble and contemplate buying a second small router…

Yeah, I can’t tell you how many times I dialed it in ‘too close’ and got ‘the ridge’. But, that really was when I was on the jobsite every day trying to crank stuff out as fast as possible. The router was in and out of the truck, and it was usually the only one I had with me (I’ve always had several full size routers, but rarely kept them with me), so bits got swapped out regularly. So, I got in the habit of seeing just a hairline transition corner on the top of my round overs… then, hitting them with a swipe or two of sandpaper.
