I don't think anyone on the IL or the 40 man count against the minor league limit
I did scour the minor league transactions and found that the Giants have placed the following players on the minor league 60 day IL:
Marques Johnson, rp
Spencer Miles, rp
Liam Simon, rp
Michael Stryffeler, rp
Thomas Szapucki, rp
Cole Waites, rp
Nick Zwack, sp
Aeverson Arteaga, ss
Dariel Lopez, 3b

Additionally, apparently there is a full season IL list for the minor leagues as well. The Giants placed the following on that list:
Luis Bermudez, sp
Gerelmi Maldonado, sp
Melvin Pineda, sp

I know nothing about this limit and have only heard about it here.

That said, might this restriction be part of a bigger plan to apply ceilings and floors to salaries?
Not directly. It's definitely a movement over the last decade or so to reduce org costs though.

So the opening day roster is:

SP: Webb, Snell, Hicks, Harrison, Cobb?
RP: Doval, Taylor, Tyler, Walker, Jackson, Winn, Roupp, Jefferies?
C: Bailey, Bart, Murphy
IF: Chapman, Estrada, Fitzgerald, Flores, Wade
OF: Conforto, Lee, Slater, Soler, Yaz

Matos comes up tomorrow when Yaz goes out on paternity leave. They try like hell to trade Bart.

Jefferies was assigned to Sacto. Miller made the club.

I think they are trying to sneak Bart through waivers. Let everyone lock themselves into rosters for a few days, then DFA him.

I am sure they are listening to trade offers as well, but I doubt that happens.

I was shocked that Miller made the club. How often do you hear of a guy getting optioned early in camp and never officially brought back to big league camp, only to get added to the active roster? It is pretty rare.

And while talk about Small has been, well, small, I had no idea that his injury would require at least 2 months of recovery time.

Here is my theory on the Bart situation. I think the Giants know that they won't find a trade partner but want to keep both him and Hummel. So they decide to send Hummel through waivers first. Once his situation is settled, they dfa Bart. The hopes are probably that they keep at least one at AAA to pair with Sabol at catcher. If they lose both, then they are shorthanded at AAA at catcher.

8th round pick who hasn't pitched in pro ball yet.
Maybe he will work out as well as the last Strickland they got from the Pirates.
I know absolutely nothing about the kid. But he was just drafted last year, so he is completely raw and the Giants have a very long time to develop him.

Here is the paragraph from MLBTR:
The return for Bart is a lottery ticket in Strickland, who was an eighth-round pick for the Pirates in last summer’s draft. The University of Kentucky product has yet to begin his pro career, and Baseball America’s scouting report cites his three-pitch mix, headlined by a fastball that usually sits in the 93-94mph range. Strickland generates a lot of grounders and he has mostly worked as a multi-inning reliever, so this might hold appeal to a Giants team that has traditionally been creative with its usage of pitchers.

His college numbers are less than impressive, though. Hard to translate college numbers into the pros, but I would rather see good numbers and question the level of competition he faced to inflate his numbers, than see bad numbers and wonder what the team saw in him.

Brett Wisely is absolutely RAKING at AAA. The breakout season is coming. The league isn't ready for his Ginger Gnome power:

We have been missing our beloved Ginger Power this year. I know you, in particular, are mourning this more than most.
