I had a book requested then they send a pm telling me it was a mistake and to cancel it. I had not even accepted it yet why didnt they just cancel it ? Weird to me.

Kay--If it's not a wish list book, you shouldn't cancel, the requester should. If you cancel you'll lose your place in the FIFO line.

Yes, if you cancel, the server will request the book from the next sender in line for them.  You "done right" by telling them to cancel from their end.
