    So there is an anomaly .. defender tackled in Tig = 22m .. defender held up = 5m scrum But the latter is so rare it's not worth worrying about

    Well, that general rule isn't in the Law Book any more now, just various scenarios... so I would say 21.17 applies , as it specifically covers it

    Does it - it goes against the general rule that if the attackers take it in and it is made dead it is a 22m drop out.

    No. If the attacking team put ball into in-goal it will never be an attacking scrum, no matter how much messing around the defenders do.
