I use Firefox with some strict cookie settings and have never seen this behavior with AdNauseam.  I used uBlock Origin prior to AN and liked it, but AN is better in my opinion.  If for no other reason than I have fewer compatibility issues with sites.

Would you be willing to run a Super AntiSpyware scan to see what comes up? It's a free well known / well respected scanner which removes spyware as well as adware like tracking cookies. While using adblock, only 1 tracking cookie from newegg.ca ever made it through to me and it would only ever come up maybe once a week since I visit there often. Given that I have no cookie restrictions enabled within Chrome, I'd say I'm doing pretty good even with an inferior adblock plugin. If AdNauseam does in fact work as you think it does, then you wouldn't have any tracking cookies at all. If that source website is right (or at least how I interpreted the info), you'd have a lot of them come up in the scan. I'm really curious to know the results because I would be willing to "stick it to the man" with a counter attack to all ads if there's no drawbacks to running AdNauseam over uBlock (resource consumption aside).
