Put the analogue faders into "ABS" Absolute mode.
Set 16 channels in your DAW as 16 midi tracks with each one assigned to the Matrix fader 1-16 respectively. Record the fader movements into into your DAW as if "playing" the analogue ones. While the faders on the analogue layer won't move, the controller faders for them will.

If you want to over-write automation you've previously done, put Logic into "Touch" mode and whenever you touch a fader you'll over-write the previous automation. When you let go of it it *should* snap back to the previous value.

Alternatively, put your analogue faders on the Matrix into "Trim" mode. The DAW faders will now give (IIRC) -20 to +10dB of trim, and you can still change levels on the faders on the analogue layer as a "master".
