The tailplane still looks to have 'negative' incidence relative to the main wing, which would make it a conventional (non-lifting) tail. Whereas the Bleriot had a lifting tail.
The main wing's high positive incidence is like the B-52's, which is related to the tandem LG trucks preventing rotation for takeoff. But the Dornier, being a taildragger, wouldn't have that issue. There ust be another rationale for the high wing incidence.
