So whenever someone yells out a position, I always echoe it out of habit and to help out my team. My question is, in recball, do people find it annoying? Im not obnoxious about it, I mostly mirror it once, but I feel other recballers find it annoying or dont take me seriously because im only 15.

But when you yell tag and charge someone they tend to give up fairly easily

But since you say they are experienced, you might just need to deal with it for the game. Perhaps you can talk to them off field so they understand that you have to play as a team to win games.
Also, they really don't take you serious cause your 15? That's just strange to me cause as long as I am wearing paintball pants, and wearing a good mask, recballers tend to think I am a pro, (but I'm 18, and always bring my regular marker along with my pump to play recball) but that's a whole different conversation. They are probably just ageist older guys who think that if you are under 18, you aren't qualified enough to know what you are talking about.
Be calm with them, be understanding to their lack of knowledge/communication.

Since I don't see a downside to doing so, I'm constantly calling out the other team's positions. Either my teammates will get smart and listen, or fail on their own accord.
It's up to them how they want to play this game. No skin off my nose.

I do enough barking orders on the field, so I like being the guy that does what needs to be done in recball. When someone says "We need someone... to go over there... and do __________" I usually will volunteer
I always felt it earns a ton of respect at the field by the other players, when you are the one who is willing to step forward and get it done for the game.
It doesn't matter if they need me to sprint to the 50 and try to snatch the flag first, or go into the thick woods to hold off a push, or go down a trail, etc
In recball, for me, one of the biggest parts of playing recball is earning the respect of the players around you. When someone is attempting to "take charge" before the game starts, it certainly goes a long way in the eyes of your teammates and that person, when you volunteer to do something that is being asked.
I know everyone likes to be a chief, but there is nothing wrong with being an indian for a few games for the sake of competition

I tell my teammates close to me, since it is woodsball and if I yell it out the enemy is gonna disappear in a heartbeat, and we all take different routes around.
During that process, we all communicate with close by members to of nearby enemies that were not seen before.
But most of the time we charge in and yell like maniacs and the people in the sidelines are shaking their head laughing in shame.
