I’ve already been all over the internet and I have nowhere else to turn
so... they ARE only supposed to spawn ~200 blocks away from villages, right? I’m being met with them everywhere, all around my house, yet no sign of an actual village in any direction. I did find a village, but it’s just half a house and there are 0 beds, 0 villagers. So why are they spawning?? Can I get them to stop spawning?

I think this is only for the raids. The pillager patrols do not trigger raids, nor are they a part of them, so it doesn't make sense that they would only spawn around 200 blocks away from the nearest village (they haven't actually found it yet, that's why they're out on patrol). They do probably have a biome restriction, only appearing in biomes that villages can generate.
I was off gathering wood away from the center of the village, and 20 seconds later, a group of Pillager patrols spawned out of nowhere in the middle of the village and started to murder all my villagers again... What the heck Mojang? I thought Pillager Patrols are meant to spawn far away from the closest village!!
Until Iron Golems start to respawn in the village, I have to force myself to stick around villagers and be on the lookout for pillagers all day.
I could just cheese through and block off the door entrances with villagers stuck in their houses, but that would make the game too easy and I don't like cheating the system.
You know, now what I think happened is the village failed to generate, but it’s still being recognized as a village. There are no actual villagers so I’m going to destroy as much of the area as possible and see if it does anything...
it sucks that it seems to be a widespread problem though.
