I believe the issue is that the parameter name is simpler than the path you've typed. For ease of reading, a lot of the parameter names seem to be shortened and nested like in your third image. However, there is a property called 'PositionTargetValue' that I can write to in the little test sim I made. Give this a try:
in = setBlockParameter(in,'chair_exp2/PJ_ground_rail','PositionTargetValue',0.2)
