And whoever "administered" that shot is a hack.....you're supposed to aspirate (pull back on the plunger) before pushing, to make sure you're not in a blood vessel.

They have ones that auto retract needle at end of stroke. At very end of the stroke you can see it jump a bit which is indicative of the auto retracts. If it had sound you might be able to hear it click.

Have never seen that on a syringe, just IV needles. Even with them, you have to push a button to retract it. That being said.... I've been out of the game for 10 years so who knows what may have changed.

Ya . Maybe not all do now. But a lot do. Insulin ones etc. and I’m 99.9 percent sure my covid shots did.

Also. The administer put the cap back on. Which is what they do where I work on retracktable needles but not on regular needles before putting in a sharps/ biohazard container

We were taught to never recap a needle.

Looked it up, there is such a thing as retractable needles on syringes. Whether that is what is used in this video, I can't say and won't guess. Draw your own conclusions.
