The described sorting behavior is caused by the fact that the check-box template column configuration options include the field option, which triggers an attempt the column to be bound to the 'select_all

For the template columns (ones that are for presentation purposes only, and are not bound to data item fields) you can use the columns.headerTemplate
option to determine the content, and add some text to the checkbox (if necessary):
As for the necessary custom logic for maintaining selecting rows via checkboxes, and the select/toggle all functionality, I can suggest the following example:
You can inspect it, and get an idea of the custom logic, required to implement it in your scenario. I hope this helps.
