I am not a spy, but I imagine they have some sort of internal guidelines around uploading face pics and PII to random apps/websites

If you work for the government in any way they generally don't want you spreading around PII. Number one concern is that you can be blackmailed. So of course, the lower your informational footprint is the lower the threat model.
