Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't really pay attention and thought i was pasting another example. Wasn't aware of 揃い as a 助数詞 either, so it is a helpful new information to me.Notice that the explanation #1 you quoted is 助数詞 "counter", as in 花嫁衣裳一揃い（ひとそろい）
全巻揃い can be pronounced as ぜんかんぞろい even as a noun in the same meaning as 紅白揃い.
But the explanations and examples you provide mention 連濁により「ぞろい」とも only for suffixes not nouns. What would the exceptions that allow rendakued 揃い be?In conclusion, it can be said that ぞろい is often used as そればかり, but exceptions exist.
