All the rotary encoders with pushbutton shafts that I have seen have detents. That is because while pushing the shaft button, if your finger isn't centered directly on the axis of the shaft (and many different sorts of knobs are used), you will tend to rotate the encoder while you are pushing the button.

You might try getting one of the standard detented parts, open it up, and remove the detent mechanism- it should be pretty easy to do.

It depends on the manufacturer. Sometimes there is a spring loaded ball that rides over a series of bumps on a disc- remove the ball and spring and the detents go away. Sometimes it is just a spring that slides over a series of bumps on a disc.

Just get one and open it up. It's not rocket science...
