Hello K,
You are right, but there is a difference between a functional and non-functional requirement. Senior Dev knows both of them so obviously they ask less but they definitely ask the right questions, particularly to users who often don't have any idea what they want. Our job as professionals is also to lead them towards what they really want. Also, on junior developers, there will be some who ask questions and some don't, Mostly the devs who don't ask questions means they are afraid unlike they understood. So, we need to help them and encourage them to ask questions.
