I thought you got more than 3 minutes after the 2nd set in USTA but I could be wrong.
At the very least the official could have used his discretion and let them play since he was only 30 seconds late.
It's a 10 minute break if it's a full set, but 3 minutes if there's a match tiebreak.
At the very least, the official could have followed the correct rule.
