I'm just not sure how IRS is going to look at it...

If all your transactions are reported and the wash sale doesn't move your loss to a future next year, then I don't think it matters how they look at it.
In the (IMO very unlikely) event that the IRS came back and said you did it wrong, your tax liability wouldn't change.

With 6 days left to file, I'd say just get it done.

But if one of the experts has an opinion on which (if any) of those are "substantially identical", and therefore subject to the wash sale rule, I'd listen to their opinion.
