Very small amount of color touch on spine of cover

So, this book just sold on eBay recently. The notes say "Very small amount of color touch on spine of cover" and I was wondering why it was not assigned a restored label? I am also wondering if the price it sold for accounted for the color touch in some other way? 

I've read a bit about it on these boards and my gut tells me that it didn't meet the threshold of restoration but did affect the price in some perhaps small degree. What do you guys think?

Golden age book with slight color touch can still receive a blue label. It is more desirable for a golden age book to be completely clean i.e. No tape no slight color touch  those book will generally sell for a premium to one that has some notations
