In caddy school we were taught to lower the flag softly to the deck. The membership at the club would get heated if caddies were dropping flags. I do it to this day. Every time. Either lower it by the flag, or hook it with my putter. And, by the way, I'm a casual golfer all day long.

Dropping the flag stick is on the same scale as not repairing ball marks on the green.

I don't agree. You can drop a flagstick on some greens without doing any visible damage.

Not that you should, but a ball mark is actual repairable damage.

I was told a long time ago not to "drop" it because it could possibly break the little glass things for the range finders.
