Could you please list some references where it is "often accompanied by
a masculine adjective"? I don't recall any, except in construct--which
wouldn't count.

True. But it is often accompanied by a masculine adjective, its plural
in a yod-mem like a masculine, and in this context in connection with a
masculine noun, the masculine overrides the feminine.
