My understanding is, adrenaline is the trigger for glycogen being sent from the liver, which raises blood glucose as a result.

I have seen increasing blood glucose after exercise frequently, which I think suggests some glycogen was used as a result of exercise induced adrenaline.

As a diabetic, at what point should I be thinking about eating to replenish glycogen stores?

My understanding, which could be wrong, is that, glucagon, is sent form the pancreas [alpha cells], to the liver, which then releases glycogen as a source of fuel......

In terms of when to replenish your livers energy stores I don't know unfortunately.........

good question though...
