Those are photosensitive … might not have had enough sun at
that size to turn the stem black. I’ve seen them under bark
that look almost like farmed enoki.

I made a similar observation of Flammulina like mushrooms that appeared terrestrial (probably from buried wood) and did not show the very dark stalks.
