Sounds like you're really lucky. I've never had a hamster warm to me that quickly. Usually takes a bit of patience to get them gradually used to you. Enjoy!

He may be a confident hamster and won’t need much taming. Trying again should be ok.

Totally normal! Hamsters randomly groom themselves at times and he/she just so happened to start grooming themselves while they were in your hand. Nothing to be worried about, in fact (this is just a personal opinion) I would be honored that a hamster trusts me enough to clean themselves on me haha
