Hi, I will attempt to shed some light on your first question. The following information I gathered was from a GeneralStabs produced map series called "Der Feldzug gegen Sowjet-Russland : Band I. Operationen Sommer-Herbst 1941 vom 21. Juni-6. Dezember 1941." If you know anything about the German General Staff (and how competitive it was to get in), then you know this is gonna be a meticulously done map series. (while the location of the German units on these maps can be considered accurate, as they were based on the daily evening situation reports that were being communicated directly from the front, in cases where they (the Generalstabs) are unsure exactly what a division is doing or where it is, they find a way to indicate it on the map. The maps report of Soviet locations and movements is also based on German reports, so the soviet unit locations are only shown from the German perspective, and dont account for full info, (i.e., the real life fog of war, btw, this also implies that at least some of the indicated Soviet dispostions on that map are in fact incorrect.)
You can actually look at this map series yourself at the Library of Congress website (or just copy and paste the german title on google). If you're not aware, this map is a (starting with evening June 21 dispostions) day by day divisional location guide for the entire eastern front. It was based on the actual location of the every German/Axis divsion/bridade/regt location that was updated every evening from the 21st of June (yes the day before the actual invasion) till Dec 06. While June 22- early Sept are day by day updates, the updating was not done daily in Oct / Nov / Dec, possibly once it was obvious that the operation had failed strategically (at least as initially envisioned ala early endings in Poland/France) and therefore there may have been less motivation to record this campaign for posterity (that does not seem like plausible reasoning though).
The Generalstabs' map indicates (and Manstein's map for his book is not technically incorrect), that as of the evening of 21 June (each division's evening reports,which probably inluded a situation/status/location report, were probably required by their higher headquarters at 1900 hours every evening, thats 7pm if you were not aware, and of course those reports would make their way up the chain of command till OKH got them), the 207 was split into 2 pieces.
On the map there is location 1) 207 that has the letters "Ma" next to it, and 2) the second location has the german letters "tle."
In case you are unfamiliar with German map protocol, the "ma" is an abbreviation of "Main" (as in "main body") and the "tle" is an abbreviation of the german word "teile" which means parts (in this context when the German word "parts" was used it should be thought of as "smaller parts.")
When this was done on the map for regular divisions, the "tle" usually meant approximately one regiment (plus whatever division/corps assets may have been attached) ,though not necessarily, it could be a scratch force e.g., Bn(+), Regt(-), or a smaller sized Kampfegrupee etc. for example, while the "ma" indicated the main body of the division (usually the 2 remaining regiments plus support, in the case of a 1941 ToE Wehrmacht early welle infantry div).
On the OKH situation map (the one made by the Germans based on the evening daily reports from each division along the entire eastern front) the evening of June 21st indicates that the smaller part of the 207th is right on the border of Lithuania (with the 217th on its left and 11th on its right, btw the 58th is shown at least 5-10 miles behind the 11th Infantry division, however, the main part of the 207 is about 50-75 (I'm estimating as its hard to judge on this digital map) miles away from the detached part of the 207th on the border, maybe 15-20 miles north east of Konigsberg (Labiau, like you said), and this is the location of at least 66 percent of the division. So, based on this source, part of the divison was on the frontline/Barbarossa launch area, and the main part of it was at least 30-40 miles away in the vicinity of NE of Konigsberg.
It was probably a game design decision to set it as it is. Hope this helps. By the way, sorry for the length, I just recently came across this info and am just really talking to myself somewhat.
