My guess is the commanders know about these exercises, the regular crew/pilots do not.
I recall in one of the videos where a UAP was spotted, the pilot asked for permission to approach it and the first thing they asked was if they were armed, and after the pilot said no, they gave him permission to try and get closer.

So yeah, it wasn't something they thought was a threat.
