For the same reason FAA (in the US) regulates much of military aviation - because it effects civil charting and civil users. Except when involved in tactical operations and when in military base local areas, military aircraft are controlled by civil ATC. You rarely hear them because they operate on UHF frequencies instead of VHF like we do but they are there.

They have some exemptions and, in emergencies, many more but they operate under most of the same rules we do while in civil controlled airspace.

ICAO does not usually impose airport codes. An operator, civil or military, applies to them for the use of a code and if the requested code meets their reqauirements and is not in use by some other facility, it is granted and reserved.

Because the ICAO was set up as an agency of the UN to create standardised principles and methods of air navigation. The ICAO also creates basic standards to maintain safe growth. The ICAO were to set up airport codes for use by ATC - military airports are a small percentage of the airports in the world so they may as well encompass those airports, despite their title contradicting it.

Too slow Oops!
