iPhone: Game app able to access Photos without permission [Resolved]

I have downloaded a game from the App Store onto my iPhone. My understanding is that apps need to ask for, and be granted or denied, permission to access iCloud, Photo gallery etc.

But in this game, there is an option to change the profile picture, and when I tap on it, it accesses my Photo gallery and I can change the profile picture from images in my gallery.

In Settings, I don’t see that there is any Photo gallery access permission for this app.

What exactly is happening in the background? Does iPhone treat game apps different from normal apps?

The app in question is a game called Word Domination.
