Just wondering the importance of proper "clocking" of the rear springs.

I watched them install the last rear spring - they removed the stock spring, installed the rubber insulators on the top/bottom of the new spring - stuck them in and rebolted things. It sits fine, as far as I can tell - only about 5 miles on it so far.

Is "clocking" the rear springs something that needs to be done with fine detail or is it just something you need to worry about if there's a problem?

The cup for the rear spring has a protruding piece coming out from the bottom of the cup. It's to prevent the spring from rotating within the cup. As long as it's not sitting on it, you should be fine.
