The only way to know is to have the computer pulled and the logs analyzed by someone who knows what they are doing.
I can tell you that most cars these days only deploy the airbags in severe circumstances. This is for two reasons: One is reduce the risk of injury from the airbags themselves and to reduce the repair cost. The second - and this is important - is to keep the airbags for use in the event of a secondary collision.
Based on your description, I would bet that they airbags didn't deploy because the collision profile wasn't severe enough to warrant it. But as I say, only someone who can read the logs and evaluate the system can tell you if that was the case or if there was a malfunction.
