Not if it's a digital system. They don't use companders.
No they dont need them thankfully. But there may be some sort of limiter in there. The fact that there's a gain trim suggests the front end has more dynamic range than downstream of it, hence the need for a gain trim.
Re the trimmer, the OP believed that setting it to maximum gain would give best S/N. Without special knowledge of the particular wireless mic, I'd start by setting it to a mid position.
