I don't think they realized that's what they were doing.
If these aliens aren't capable of understanding what they were doing, how than are they capable of understanding the concept of 'help'?
If we accept Timo's hypothesis that the aliens are far above us in intelligence and technology and very alien, then it's probably useless to speculate on their actions and motives, which are probably beyond our understanding.

And you can't really paint these writers as the creative type if they think ending the episode with Picard saying we may never solve Fermat's theorem... even though we did.
That's unfair. The episode aired six years before the proof.
