trouble defining the right values for range and rescale parameters. I read
in other posts and lists that the suggested value for both range and
rescale is '0,10000' while in other posts someone else suggests to use min
and max values (from r.info) for range and '1,10000' or '0, 10000' for

In Sentinel2, the value 0 means nodata, therefore the range must start with
1. The QUANTIFICATION_VALUE from the metadata (now 10000, previously 1000)
should be used as upper limit for range. Thus try range=1,10000
