Here is the Constructors' Championship as it stands after the 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix:

Budapest 2022 F1

What I understand is that the constructor points are awarded based on the drivers' race positions, plus with fastest lap point. For example, at the Bahrain Grand Prix, Ferrari got 44 points: 25 from Leclerc, 18 from Sainz, plus 1 point for fastest lap.

However, if you look at the Austrian Grand Prix, Ferrari got 38 points while Sainz did not finish the race. Where did the other 13 points come from?

Austria is one of three "sprint weekends" on the 2022 calendar (along with Italy and Brazil), that schedules a mini race on Saturday to set the Sunday GP grid. This sprint race also awards championship points for the first 8 finishers.

F1 Sprint Results Austria 2022 shows that the Ferrari cars finished 2 and 3 in the sprint (behind Verstappen) with Leclerc getting 7 points and Sainz getting 6.

Note Red Bull's 58 points in Italy on your graphic. That's more than the normal maximum of 44 possible for a traditional race weekend.
