Part of it is I think you’re applying some kind of human logic to an unknowable “thing”. It’s mimicry only extended so far as to keep itself safe. It’s motivations are not for us to know and it could even be said that it’s mimicry is purely instinctual and it’s not even consciously trying to trick people, it’s just as natural to it as breathing is to us.

It may be able to mimic humans but not understand them, like a parrot repeating a phrase.
