I do hope they add explanations on when the taa-marbutah is "activated" (which I think is happening here).

In this case, we pronounced the ة because it has a nunation نتيون on it, which in this case is ٌ so it's as if the ة isn't really the end of the word, because there is an -un sound after it.

For more info about nunation, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nunation
