Starfleet seems to have something against AI, and robots in particular. They don't even seem to have them to do routine maintenance, like clean the waste processors. I wonder if the Telarites had some sort of robot apocalypse in their history or something
What we saw in the ENT episode dead stop with the repair station is more likely how repairs will really be conducted and at high speed with those robotic worker arms and stuff.
But that was an alien station, wasn't it? What Starfleet facilities we have seen seem to use manned worker bees and the like.
But still, that's not day-to-day stuff. It would make more sense to have a bunch of advanced Roombas doing the cleaning, rather than some non-coms/Bajorans.
