The manga's been hinting for awhile at what they finally admitted in the most recent chapter: Most of the Fog ships have no experience whatsoever with emotions and so don't know how to deal. Hence why they run the board from the creepy twins (I-400 & I-402) to the Iona-sexual (Hyuuga) to the "Red Queen" (Kongō). A little eccentricity when you've gone from being an unfeeling machine to a fully-realized sentient being is to be expected. Iona just seems the most well-balanced because she's constantly around humans who aren't utter dickheads or acting under their own agenda.

Masochist: "Hurt me!"
Sadist: "No."
