Aside from learning a new move? Will all evs be accounted for when scaling occurs for a competive level 50 battle?

EVs will be accounted for and for the time being, leveling past 50 should just be for new moves, if you only intend to use the Pokemon for competition.

Not really as far as I know. In fact, I've noticed this gen has been especially nice about this. Like with Pokemon like Volcarona. You can apparently learn all of its super high level moves with heart scales rather than leveling it up. The same for some other pokes

I guess maybe to bluff a certain level up move?

If you're using it only for competitions then you can stop levelling as soon as you get your desired moveset on it.

If you bred a level 1 with four egg moves you wanted to keep, then by all means keep it at level 1 and Super Train it's EVs.
