Since Starfleet Marines would be fictional. why would they have to conform exactly to any real life Marine organizations?
Because the 1.5 million active duty military (Marines or not) would notice the difference. The 22 million veterans (Marines or not) would notice the difference. And tens of millions of military family members (of Marines or not) would notice the difference.

All these people are potential viewers.

Reverse the question, what possible reason could there be to not get it correct?

Since they aren't playing US Marines, why should they care? It's Star Trek, not Gomer Pyle USMC. That's like complaining about a show featuring the Royal Marines because they do things different than the USMC.
