There are retraction setttings under filament setting/filament overrides and they are also located under Printer settings/Extruder 1. Do they override each other? Do they double up if you have both of them set? I can see if the need for both, for example if you are dialing in a specific filament then you would adjust under the filament settings but then why have them under printer settings? Also, if you have already set retraction up under printer settings and then adjust under filament settings for a specific fialment does it use the filement settings, or add both?

The printer (extruder) settings are the defaults. You can optionally specify overrides for each filament but it is entirely optional. If find the defaults work in most cases, but that some filament (e.g. flexibles) have unique requirements.

Just to be clear, the filament setting always overrides the extruder setting?

As I understand it, yes. The filament overrides supersede settings specified elsewhere. I haven't done an intensive test, but it seems to work as described.
