It could be a few things.

1. The mobile provider has either not provided data to IANA (https://www.iana.org/) or the controlling RIR (https://www.whatismyip.com/ip-whois-lookup/).

2. The mobile provider has a prearranged agreement to mark the data as private.

3. The mobile provider is using NAT and the IP address assigned to your phone is not a public IP. An example would be if your phone has an IP address like 192.168.x.x or 10.1.10.x.
