Will it allow a 2016 MacBook 12” to output via hdmi 2.0 4K @60hz resolution?
I know it doesn’t say that in specs but has anyone tried?

No. I have tried the adapter on a MacBook. This adapter with a MacBook only allows 4K 30Hz HDMI 2.0. The MacBook is not one of the computers listed as supporting 4K 60Hz in the the Apple Support document HT207806 "About the Apple USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter". The MacBook cannot output two lanes of DisplayPort 1.4 because the Intel graphics only supports DisplayPort 1.2. Search for an adapter that does not include 5 Gbps USB 3.0 which will then allow four lanes of DisplayPort. For example, adapters that use the MCDP2900 chip will have four lanes operating at 5.4 Gbps per lane which gives them 33% more bandwidth than this adapter that uses a chip that has two lanes at 8.1 Gbps.
