You can see how the slave maker ants ignore the mole crickets as they carry food to the food storage. The slave makers even ignore being hit by the mole crickets as they walk past them. (Even though combat is enabled for their group.)
The trapjaw ants that followed after immediately dropped their food to attack the same mole crickets.
Since slave maker ants are soldier ants I assume it is a bug for them not to drop their food and attack an enemy on seeing them? (They behave like a worker ant would do in that situation.)

i think it is because in the level 1.2 they carry your brood ignoring combat.
I don't think that has something to do with this. (In 1.2 the ants that carry do not attack your ants even if they are not carrying anything.)

I think the slave maker ants have worker 'brains' or parts of worker 'brains'.
The slave makers sometimes behave in a way similar to worker ants:
- Not fighting back when attacked and carrying something.
- Not dropping something they carry when enemies are nearby and they are allowed to attack.
The other soldier ants do not display this behavior.
