I agree with you, but also with those who observed that the notion of a
federal agency holding copyright is a bit odd; published US government
work falls into the public domain, and I would expect a work for hire
(by a contractor) to have a corresponding copyright holder.

IANAL, but I do work directly for a different US government agency (the
National Center for Biotechnology Information) as a software developer.
