A single snapshot of the pilot chute (still image) may have just captured the pilot chute as it was deflated, making it appear to be uncocked.
I've got over a dozen pics that makes it look like someone is having an uninflated drogue in tow, when it's just because I snapped them at the exact instant before they inflated. Here's one off the laptop.
ETA: another one, yes, I know he's rolling to his side.
