from a 2011 FBI bulletin detailing the exception:

So, at some point during that questioning, it must've been determined that the scope of questioning changed and he had to be mirandized. The FBI might not have liked it. But someone made the determination that the public safety exception couldn't be used anymore or risk jeopardizing the admissibility of the information/evidence gained from that point on.
The statements I have heard said they would've pressed harder if they knew when the time frame was up, and they were still trying to find out if others were involved.
