Correction, the Federation's security, and safeguard the Federation
I'm sorry but i'm supposed to believe that a secret group with absolute power to do whatever they want to anyone is benevolent and selfless? This has never happened in the whole history of the world. The only thing that has ever come from people with absolute power is some of the most horrible and unspeakable crimes imaginable.

It does not matter who they have to kill or how many races they have to genocide.
And yet in spite of your contention, S31 never "genocided" the Romulans or the Klingons, the Klingons especially were a long time treat and opponent of the Federation. The 22nd century verison of S31 took steps to stabilize the Klingon Empire

When the Federation was fighting a protracted boarder war with the Cardassians, S31 never "genocided" the Cardassians. There is no canon evidence that S31 goes around haphazardly killing people
There was never a need to genocide the Cardassians. They were a second rate power that the Federation could have crushed if they wanted too. But the Federation isn't warlike and aggressive so they use the smallest amount of force that is needed.

As for the Klingons and Romulus, no one said that section 31 goes around genociding any race that might be a threat. But when they think the situations calls for it they have no problem doing it.

Just like how the founders don't go around genociding every race they think is threat, but they don't have a problem doing it when they think it is needed.

This is what makes them the same thing. Two secrets groups that think they are justified in doing anything to safeguard themselves.
