I think it was more the 5-10 wars Starfleet has been the sole Federation beligerants in over the 'past' 200 years that really push people to consider Starfleet the Federation's military.
Everything I have seen on ANY show, Starfleet is responsible for both space and planetary security.
They may not be a military in the traditional sense as they lack force projection, but they are certainly more than an 'exploratory group'.
500 years in the future and we still look like schmucks when getting our ID photos taken...
