How our some ads allowed to display phone numbers?

I thought placing phone numbers in ads were banned. It appears some advertisers that appear at the top and at the side are allowed to place their phone numbers next to the address URL, how is this possible?

Hi, its all done when setting your account up, Click ADD EXTENSIONS, then click VIEW: Site View Extensions (on left side under CAMPAIGNS + GROUPS tab), this opens up a series of tab options - click CALL EXTENSIONS, then click the red box EXTENSIONS, click the campaign you want once DONE opens up the area where you + NEW PHONE NUMBER, click this then chose your country add the number, save and save. Your telephone number will now be shown on all the adds showing under that CAMPAIGN.
