But they can tell the dude, "Yo you should prob. go with this ruling." And it's not like these officials, who are replacements, are gonna get ego headed and ignore him.
If it comes out that the referee was told and he ignored the replay guy outright then fine, but if not everyone dropped the ball, but the replay official shit the bed. But I find it hard that the ref wouldn't defer to the replay official had he been insistent to over turn it.
