Confused about model release

I read if you use a photo for commercial purpose (to make money), you need model releases for all recognizable people in the photo.

So how could these be used as stock photos:

https://www.istockphoto.com/photo/crowds-with-hands-up-cheering-their-team-gm1128664603-297886233

There are more like these where they come from.

Due to the number of people, it is unlikely the photog was able to hunt down all the people in the photo, much less get them to sign model releases.
