The idea that eugenics aims at creating tall blonde blue-eyes is obvious enough. But both "Space Seed" and ST2 did their damnedest to portray the Augments as a bunch of individualistic leaders, not mindless followers; ST2 even had them make fun of the concept of uniform, by accessorizing their rags with Starfleet jackets and whatnot.
If you'd been living like Khan's people for all that time (obviously not one of them was intelligent enough to figure out how to sew), wouldn't you grab the chance to add something to your wardrobe? The jackets were practical, as well as "trophies", and the insignia wouldn't have meant much more to the younger ones than a different kind of ornament.
