an adjective after a noun

I have faced the following

“The work leverages features unique to a particular platform.”

As far as I know an adjective is used before a noun but how can we say “features unique”?

I think “unique features” is correct. But this sentence is written in a valid text and the probability of making a mistake by authors is very low!!!


The example sentence is an elided form of the following:

The work leverages features [that are] unique to a particular platform.

In short, it’s assumed to have a relative pronoun and verb between features and unique. But it’s not uncommon to leave those linking words out.
