We complete the investigation of the Gibbs properties of the fuzzy Potts model on the $d$-dimensional torus with Kac interaction which was started by Jahnel and one of the authors in (Sharp thresholds for Gibbs-non-Gibbs transitions in the fuzzy Potts model with a Kac-type interaction (2017)). As our main result of the present paper, we extend the previous sharpness result of mean-field bounds to cover all possible cases of fuzzy transformations, allowing also for the occurrence of Ising classes (containing precisely two spin values). The closing of this previously left open Ising-gap involves an analytical argument showing uniqueness of minimizing profiles for certain non-homogeneous conditional variational problems.
