After manually defrosting the unit, I followed the instructions for forcing defrost cycle on the Adaptive Defrost Control Board (shorting L1 and TEST). I heard the clicking sound of the relay. What does this really mean?

The clicking is the sound of the relay on the ADC board. Whether or not it's actually doing anything is another matter and can only be determined by measuring voltage with your meter. Since you manually defrosted the evaporator, the defrost t'stat was likely open and so would have prevented the defrost heaters from firing. An easy test would be repeat the force defrost on the ADC board when the freezer is at normal operating temperature and see if the heaters fire up.
