Do u think treasury will manage their new mortgage portfolio like a conventional manager – hedging the negative convexity with swaps and swaptions?

Good question!

I wouldn’t; they might.

It wouldn’t serve public purpose to do that. It would add to volatility.

Just doing the exchange reduces volatility as the government absorbs it, which I see as serving public purpose.
