Most people snore while using a nasal mask and with the mouth closed. Snoring is caused from the vibration of various tissues throughout the pharynx and ranges in frequencies from very low to very high.

All of the AutoCPAPs trigger first from snore, and most people are on nasal mask (in fact I don't believe that FF mask did not even exist when snore trigger AutoCPAPs were developed).

So, enjoy your snoring through the nose.

However, I should mention that anything more than an occasional snore is an indication of pressure to low, which should be discussed with your Dr. Many sleep Dr's ask people to watch for snoring breakthrough.
