Summary0000124: S3M files detected as mimetype application/octet-stream

I was wondering whether file could report the mime type for S3M files, especially considering that other audio module formats are correctly reported. However, when I tried to check the mime type for these files, they were reported as a generic octet stream. This confused me especially since the source code references these files alongside their mime types in /magic/Magdir/audio at around line 128. Why is file/libmagic not reporting the correct mime type if it's defined in the code? An example file showing this behavior has been attached.
Steps To Reproduce$ file <filename>.s3m
<filename>.s3m: ScreamTracker III Module sound data Title: "<title>"
$ file --mime-type <filename>.s3m
<filename>.s3m: application/octet-stream
