clicked exit, then it came to me:
These people are Trojans when they speak in mock voices.

Parody ...almost works. Not quite the word I was looking for, though.

Self-mockery? I read a quote somewhere that self-mocking is sometimes used by a narcissist to 'charm and disarm criticism.'

Using the theories in Transactional analysis, he would be expressing the child side of his personality and has not developed into his masculine adulthood fully.
In street words, he's a "girly man" and a "Mama's boy".

Hostility. Afraid to say how he really feels so he uses a weird voice to try to disguisel his hostility and make himself feel better.

Vall used the word "fear" and that was the word that came to my mind. If he is unsure he will be validated in his feelings he might express them in a way that they can be taken back if not accepted.

It's really hard to second guess this without seeing the person, the expression on their face and their body language or having spent some time with him.

I think it would be kind to assume fear, though, until otherwise indicated. Under his seeming indifference may be a tender spirit.
