I am not sure if a sleeve will work. We used just the posts by themselves.
For structural support, it’s always best to have it flush mounted. If you do need to “tilt your post some, determine the angle and cut the bottom of the 4x4 to match.
it can be used used to connect the deck with the post. I might suggest though using a more sturdier bracket like a ABU44. it has taller sides on two sides which aid in securing the post to the deck. it also has what we call a stand-off base which is really the bottom of the bracket has a 1" base that the post sits upon. the great thing about this is it sheds water away from the bottom of the post. this where many posts fail because the bottom of the post has no way of drying out sometimes.
for instance you've drilled the anchor bolt hole and now that the hole doesn't line up. well this bracket has a bolt hole that allows you to move the bracket and still anchor the bracket
You need to follow the manufactures speciation's, so that its safe and will pass code inspection. To answer your question on whether or not its safe will depend on the amount of wind sheer or up-drafts you have in your location. The bigger the anchor the less likely your covered patio will fail during a storm. Make sure you use a high quality concrete/ metal epoxy to help fix the anchor in the concrete, so it cant back out.
depending upon the size of 4 x 4 ? that being place upon the bracket you could use a 1/2" bolt up to a 3/4" bolt.
They are really meant to set on concrete slab to get the post off the wet slab when it rains so it doesn’t rot - like the posts on a front porch. That’s where I used them. If you use quick set concrete and brace the post while it sets you should not need these on a fence
J Werth, here is a load table published by the manufacturer. You can find a lot of information on the post bases at the manufacturers web siite https://www.strongtie.com/retrofitpostbases_postbases/aba-abu-abw_productgroup_wcc/p/aba.abu.abw
this type of bracket may hold in a high wind but I'm sure they would fail in a hurricane
