I think the TNG wardrobe issue was simply a matter of not wasting the costume budget on such a small character.
I think the intention in TNG was that O'Brien had attened the academy and was a comissioned officer.

If they wanted him as an NCO in TNG they could have just left the rank pips off.
Didn't they actually start referring to O'Brien as an enlisted man in TNG?
"Family" officially made O'Brien an enlisted chief.
