Under NCAA rules, a foul by the defense behind the LOS is penalized from the previous spot, regardless of the type of play (running or loose ball).

In NFHS, if the QB is tackled by the facemask & goes to the ground, it's a running play & penalized from the end of the run. If he passes or fumbles, it's a loose ball play & is penalized from the previous spot.

There's no logical reason for such a difference -- therefore, it's "gratuitous".
