I have tried SSH and FTP bruteforcing the worker node and exceeding the limit of failed connections, again no notice.log. I can see the detect-bruteforcing.bro scripts loaded in the loaded_scripts.log. I am pretty new to Bro, so I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

Are you running Bro on the machine that is running the ssh and ftp server?

Your logs are likely broken, but you haven't looked closely enough at them.  Just because a log exists doesn't mean bro is seeing both sides of the connection.
