^ Like I said, it's an oft-used shorthand to refer to someone who is a Lieutenant Colonel as just "Colonel."

And we do know that the Bajoran military has that rank. Colonel Day (Steven Weber's character from that 3-parter) was one.
Though even Odo, a strictler for formality, even when he was laying it on thick in Image in the Sand, didn't say it.
Odo may be formal, but he has never cared much for the military or its practices.
