You're right, manga, that definitely counts as superstition. Maybe the bits in later parts of the quest were said 'out of habit' - Rayek and others were raised to think of the High Ones as godlike, and it became a habit to say one was praising them or praying to them? Much like a person raised to be religious might use religious phrases out of habit even after becoming an atheist?
