I added "rarely" and "seldom" in 2019 but I think that only applies to たまにしか...ない.

A complex issue. Most JEs only have the kana form. Still, the key tag here is the "uk".

If rK is meant to signal to learners that that the form isn't worth memorising, I think it's best not to add it to 偶に. Any semi-serious reader of Japanese will encounter that form with some frequency. I remember being tripped up by 偶に numerous times because I'd only learnt the kana.
