the seller ban make an offer to a lower bidder in that case. The bidder
isn't obliged to accept.
e.g. I offer a motor with a reserve of 2K, you bid to 1800. I can then
offer you the motor for 1800 (what you bid) but you have the right to ignore
sometimes, this works. That's how I got Edward II - reserve was too high, I
was high bidder, we came to a deal, he made me an offer, I accepted.

my opinions are just that
If all be true that I do think, There are five reasons we should drink;
Good wine, a friend, or being dry, Or lest we should be by and by;
Or any other reason why. - Henry Aldrich (1647 - 1710)
