Manual idle control 190E 2.3

I recently had a mechanic get my old 88 190E 2.3 up and running again after it had been on blocks for 4 years. He said that he'd set the idle high for awhile but after I'd driven the car a bit I could lower it back down myself. He marked the page in the Haynes manual I left on the rear seat to the page that describes how this is done. I looked at this page yesterday and am pretty baffled! It looks like there is a way to set the resting position of the throttle linkage...but Haynes shows the adjustment being made inside the car. I look inside where the throttle linkage goes through the fire wall and find no adjustable parts! I know that the party line here is that the idle is computer controlled. Does somebody out there know how an abnormally high idle might be manually set (and lowered)?
