Well, your view - I have been using netinst-ISOs only, in recently years ;)
Do you burn them to actual physical spinning optical media?
I do that. Last time I tried to make a bootable USB I destroyed my pendrive

OK being an expert in hyperbole... I recognize this as such. There's
no way making a bootable USB stick destroys it. What you're probably
experiencing is confusing elsewhere as a result of the whacky hybrid
partition scheme that's used on Fedora ISOs. To clean it up you have
to wipe the first 3 sectors to remove all three partition schemes; but
you're maybe better off just zeroing the first 1MiB.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<stick> bs=1M count=1
The new Fedora Media Writer will recognize this hybrid partition
scheme on a USB stick and offer to reset it for you.
