Ow! Yes that makes no sense when they are being so invasive otherwise! With my first I was leaking and the nurse just sort of 'swabbed'? with the litmus paper to determine if it was amniotic fluid, no speculum. No vag exams at all until I was ready to push since the bag was leaking. With my second, I leaked for a few days before going into labor, and still had AROM just before pushing.
