Hi Carl,
In my hands on human kidney FFPE sections it's just the other way around: after citrate 6.0 retrieval there is hardly any endog. biotin (like with untreated sections) but after EDTA 9.0 there is lots of endog. biotin around again! 
Who ever said that IHC is a simple and straightforward technique???

Mmmmm...I have to "disclose" that citric acid M/Wing at pH6 does lead to endog biotin disclosure yet, when I do same with TRIS adjusted to pH10, I lose practically all endog biotin. (chick tissue being a perfect example)
