comment Combining, sorting and deleting duplicates in numerous gzip files
The merge command does something completely different; sort -m is the way to go. As to how to unzip: I don't think it matters much, as long as you don't start more than 2 processes per file: one to decompress, one to sort.

comment What is a best practice to represent a boolean value in a shell script?
The dummy string for the if test is not necessary if the variable is quoted; if [ "$variable" = "yes" ] works fine even if $variable is not set.
