Am I missing something? I thought 2s in this action shows 3 spades in NMF.

Partner probably has short spades and a spade lead might be trick 9 south is probably 4-4 or 4-5 in majors. If a spade lead wasn't going to hurt partner would pass and take a plus

and since the probability of holding any 6331 is 3.5 % and 6421 4.7 % I still bid 2 spades

I think partner needs the right 11 or a magic 9 HCP for 4 to have a play. Add the Q of clubs to partner's hand giving him a one spade bid everyone would make and you could be off 4 tricks before you even try spades.
You still need 24 HCP's or distribution to make game partner will bid over 2 spades if either exists he knows you have 11-14

If partner has 6 HCP we're good if partner has 10 HCP we're good if partner has more I will hear another bid

I do like the concept of Kokish relays and I would be tempted to treat this as a spade club 2 suiter and go 2c-2d-2s(Relay)-2nt-3c(should be 5-5 but AKQt as good as 5

I will add my humour
The magic bidding box
There was a very well respected bridge player who had a little wooden box beside him on the table every time he played. Whenever there was a tough bidding decision to make he would open the box look inside and then bid. Invariably the bid he made was the perfect one for the situation and his reputation and the legend of the magic wooden bidding box grew and grew. After many years of playing the gentleman passed away and at his funeral his widow was asked “how much do you want for the magic box”. Since she didn’t play bridge she decided to hold an auction. After spirited bidding, all puns intended, the magic box was purchased. The buyer could not wait for his next bidding problem in a tournament. Early in a knockout event he got his chance. In a quandary about what to bid he picked up his magic box and opened it. To his surprise embroidered in the widows needlepoint on a velvet pillow was “pass”.
