Your screenshot tells you the reason.  The tax table is only one of seven ways of computing the tax.  You must have had capital gains or qualified dividends so the as the check mark indicates the tax is computed on the capital gains worksheet and not the tax table.

If you have any capital gains those are taxed at a lower rate.  You have to print your whole return with all the worsheets to see the Capital Gain Worksheet and how the tax is calculated.  It's very common for your Tax to be lower than the tax table.
