Q: Why are the Sith Inquisitors allowed to be Sith lords?

LWCI mean, maybe they're not called "Lords". But in the new Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series, they walk around doing Sith/Jedi tricks in the middle of cities in plain sight while serving as commanders to Stormtroopers. Does this not completely break the Rule of Two that was established as early as the-phant...
