Because they used URL redirection services, right ? Domains under
management are unlikely to be affected unless the registrant needs a
domain update.

I would imagine Google only uses Enom for TLDs that they don't carry
thru Google Domains, their own registrar.
And Google would also use its own URL redirection services, not Enom's.
