This question already has an answer here:

Should submissions written in JS that return a promise be allowed?

For example:

Promise.resolve("hi")

Doesn't output "hi", but outputs a promise that resolves with the value of "hi". If you want "hi", then

Promise.resolve("hi").then(console.log)

is needed. Should the .then(console.log) part be required (and therefore part of the byte count)?

No byte penalty

This is just an (abnormal) way of output that can show up often in fetch / submissions. I think this is absolutely fine.
