I think it's just a coincidence. I don't believe that JK Rowling would very much support house numbers playing any part in the sorting process. The sorting process surprised me so much, because she has a little video introduction explaining everything. The way she speaks and her tone is just so pure. She obviously put too much care and thought into it to have numbers influencing the outcome.

It is. In it, it directly states that it's rare and picky with whom it chooses because it comes from the most independent and detached from the world creature in the magical world. And I agree so much regarding the wands. The wood descriptions are just remarkable.
