Reddit user thedankonion1 mentioned that the YouTube Android application can only see up to 4K. It doesn't allow uses to view videos in 5K or 8K. I had checked YouTube via a computer too, but I got mislead by https://studio.youtube.com/video/[video id]/edit, which only indicates 4k and not 8k:

However, looking at the actual video via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=[video ID] with a computer, I do see the 8k option. So that explains the situation.
