Could be I guess...he didn't really look like he was mocking anything, just he looked lifeless...like the suit was empty (which I'm partially convinced it might have been).
And in regards to the intelligence, just the entire movie in general he just looked like the dullest tool in the shed when it comes to Godzillas. He didn't have a personality. You didn't know if he was doing things out of confusion or with purpose, he didn't have those moments where he seemed like he was strategic about anything, he'd get thrashed by Kiryu and casually walk away expressionless like he was following seagulls. Even MechaGodzilla's unchanging face seemed to have a spark of life in him when the memories overtook him. Godzilla looked like a mummy of his former self, almost like a shark in an aquarium that just looks oblivious as it continually bumps into the glass and doesn't know why lol
