Non Standard GIBS WMS Access

I am trying to access the GIBS satellite/aerial imagery data using the WMS service.

However the WMS service is non-standard, and apparently only works for ArcGIS? I was attempting to add the WMS server to a tool like Tableau, however the WMS endpoint from GIBS returns a .cgi file instead of a standard WMS response.

Is there a reason it is configured this way? Other WMS tools like the USGS data sets have standard WMS endpoints.

Just confused why in GIBS it is called a WMS if it doesn't meet the WMS standard?
