More information. I was able to backtrack and discovered there are 2 sets of SRMN logs: One set is when we did the snapshot standby,these are the problem logs and I don't know why it thinks it needs to apply those. I did a delete force and got rid of them, they no longer existed on disk anyway.
The other group of SRMN logs were when we had to use RMAN on the standby to rebuild the control file because after making a different size redo log and trying to remove the old ones that were unused, it just wouldn't let go of them.
My question is kinda answered, or at least it's cleaned up right now.
