^But Nog's commission was a full commission authorised by Starfleet Command, Red Squad was a field commission, wouldn't Starfleet command have to authorise them to become pernament commissions.
originally did have a skeleton crew of real officers. Presumably they all signed off on whatever commissions Red Squad had. That's the authorization.
