On the other hand, maybe a change of the expected result would be fine
as with an unchanged tcsh it is seen

 tcsh> alias postcmd "echo postcmd"
 tcsh> echo cmd

which is indeed not `post' but more `pre' ... with

 tcsh> alias precmd "echo precmd"
 tcsh> echo cmd

this is also more `post' but not `pre' at least for the I/O ;D
Let's try with time stamps

 tcsh> alias precmd "date +'pre %s:%N'"
 pre 1554898708:375412628
 tcsh> date +'cmd %s:%N'
 cmd 1554898711:981303814
 pre 1554898711:982864701

and this for post

 tcsh> alias postcmd "date +'post %s:%N'"
 tcsh> date +'cmd  %s:%N'
 post 1554898801:576673797
 cmd  1554898801:578305807
