That’s not “forced service” ~ it’s “caste difference”. Once you have an hereditary right to “draw water” no one drinks unless you allow them to have water.

Read the story. Other people drew water but the Gibeonites had to do it if the temple needed water. They did not have a right to draw water but the obligation to do it.
Saul tried to wipe them out during his reign which also argues against your premise.
