what’s your process like? before you mobilize anything, i would squat down and note the restrictions and how your foot turns out.  then i would start with one mob/smash and then retest the squat. did it get better? repeat with another mob/smash. and so on. in this orderly way, you will find out where the real problem areas are and what seems to improve the situation and what does not or has no effect.

i think andrew bridges is on the right track with ankle work. i would also do lower leg, knee, quads/hams all the way up to hips. it could be anything in that chain of muscles which is affecting your foot turning out.
