Yeah, this is how it works. But I'm just not buying it as a way to run the team. If anything when a vet makes a rookie mistake they should be come down on harder. And for the same reasons you've said, they should know better.
It's like the old business saying "The buck stops here", which was joked to be a plaque that sat on the CEO's desk. It meant no matter what went wrong it was never the CEO's fault. The CEO being the leader, probably could be considered a vet. This idea has completely changed and now is more "The buck starts here". I'd like that mentality on this team.
