You are confusing the Schengen agreement with the trade regulations of
the EU.  People within the Schengen agreement are allowed to travel
without showing passport within that area (some EU nations are not
part of it, e.g. the UK and some non-EU nations are part of it, e.g.
Norway), while the reasoning for the EU posts at airports is due to
customs rather than what ID you need to show.
