Thats the advantage when you can press button to retract trims with motor. What in case it is mechanic? Will not be easy doing so in case you do it more than once or when needed!

Ahh! I hadn't realised you were talking about fixed tabs. Not my field I'm afraid. I would guess (and that's all it is) that you would set the tabs so the boat was "neutral" & use the engine for fine tuning. Sort of defeats the object imo.

So yours come with motor and electric buttons to adjust each tab alone?

Most tabs are electro-hydraulic ( Bennet/Merc) and a few ( Lenco ) use electric actuators, all have dash controls / displays

Regarding your original question, and now knowing you have fixed tabs, I'd say to fit an aux over the tab you will either need to adjust or remove the tab to lower the aux, or you will need a stand off bracket to push the aux back away from the transom. A fixed bracket would do the job but you will want a VERY sturdy one as they rarely seem designed for the high stresses of bouncing a heavy aux on a rib in rough seas. I had an adjustable one and it was really not good. I had to strap the engine to the A frame and transom eyes to stop if bouncing, which would have eventually led to damage to the aux, bracket and transom.
