The ref wasn’t look at the facemask. He was looking at the receiver’s hands to see if he caught the ball. Yeah, there was a facemark penalty, but it’s not like the ref saw the hand on the facemask and just said “screw it, the catch was too good; I’m not gonna call it”. He never saw it because he was watching something else.
