The thing about those is that the mod of whatever subreddit they were posted to might have whitelisted the post. Shadowbanning puts every post in the mod queue.

Some mods never look at the queue or authorize posts from it while others do. Posting to an active sub can help with that, but it really is on the whims of the mods.
