Civilian ships from the various members worlds are also Federation ships.
YMMV.

But still don't see it working that way.
You really think there aren't any civilian ships in the Federation?
I think you are reading that wrong. The idea is that there are civilian ships in the Federation, but only some are registered to the Federation while others are registered to their home planets. Their sovereign home planets. There is a difference that is measureable and proper. Otherwise, why would those homeworlds have ambassadors to the Federation. They are still independent worlds linked via treaties for the most part. Starfleet is their mutual defense, but they still have ships of their own that properly do not belong to the Federation despite the planet being a member of the Federation.
