The dimension/unit of the Avogadro constant $N_\mathrm{A}$ is actually $1/\mathsf{N}$ or $\pu{mol-1}$. It is shown that way in your first reference as well, i.e. $$ N_\mathrm{A} = \pu{6.02214076E23 mol-1}. $$ What is "dimensionless" is the Avogadro number or the number of atoms / molecules in a single $\pu{mol}$ of that substance, sometimes written ...

The dimensions of Avogadro's Constant is $1/\mathsf{N}$. In SI units, this is $\pu{1/mol}$. Your unit analysis is correct. I have seen this type of question before, I believe the confusion is caused by people normally saying particles per mole, and "particles" is a "phantom" unit (similar to radian). But either way, the SI units are ...

This is an example of terminology which should be taken with a grain of salt. The term "effective nuclear charge" is often casually symbolized with $Z_\mathrm{eff}.$ This is a universally accepted simplification, but you should keep in mind that the effective nuclear charge is, strictly speaking, $Z_\mathrm{eff}e,$ where $e$ is the elementary ...
