How come when i switch my MAC on a linux box, i drop off your device hotspot list, but i still have connectivity?

If I am using an android wireless hotspot, from the most common phone, on the most common version ...

I can connect a linux box to it, and while I am connected I can take my wireless interface down, spoof the MAC, reinitialize it, and now I have dropped off the devices hotspot list, yet i still have full access and connectivity.

What makes this happen? Why is it possible? I mean there is no AP to rack me, its just cellular. I would really like to know how and why this works.

Thank You
