Should this have been mutual life?

9x9 game, ended a little lopsided. I thought that the left side would all cancel out in mutual life, but apparently, it went in my favor. I’m curious as to why. Any thoughts?

You have a link to the game?

I think this is the game:

The lower left part would normally be a seki. But in the upper left black can kill white. After this, Black can also kill white in the lower left. I added a variation in the game.

Also, OGS tries to mark the status correctly, and here it did get the left side correct. But sometimes it’s wrong and you have to fix it by clicking on stones to change status. In this game the 3 black stones in the center are marked dead when they are clearly alive. I think white got 3 points for those stones.
