Interesting, but not in DR5 catalog?

Discussion at Galaxy Zoo about the nature of this object (Voorwerpje candidate?): https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/zookeeper/galaxy-zoo/talk/1269/670130?page=1

But my question here is why isn’t this clearly visible object (or two objects) not in the DECaLS DR5 catalog and also isn’t modelled?

Much fainter objects nearby are in the DR5 catalog, and I can’t think of a good reason why this isn’t.

That poor little object is right in the bleed trail of the bright star to the left;

I usually check for bright stuff but that is far off!
