When a member is mentioned in moderator discussions it'll show as a notification, but only moderators have access to the actual thread.
It's not often done, but when it is, its intentional to make members aware that there's discussion about them. A courtesy of sorts.

That honestly seems a bit shady.

So let me get this straight. A mod can tag someone in a mod only discussion about who knows what and say who knows and it actually will let that member know they are being talked about in private. Why not just private message that member and be up front?

I used to think I was indecisive, but now I am not too sure?

Non-confrontational warning is the preferred term.

A courtesy. Though the discussions in those threads are private, there's no intent to keep secret that the discussion is taking place.
