How Can I Match These Professional Paint Touch Ups?

Before moving into my new house, the painters came back to touch up any spots on the walls. Since moving in, I’ve needed to touch up a couple of dings that I caused, but I can’t seem to match whatever seamless technique the painters used. I tried a 3/4” nap roller, but the texture was very different — more rough.

Curious if anyone know what tools and techniques may have been used by the painters for the touch ups.

Note: The sheen isn’t an issue, I’m just trying to match the texture. I understand that paint re-applied months after an initial paint job will produce a slight sheen variation, also given the way the walls absorb a first coat of paint.
