Just because your text message indicates that it has been read, it doesn't mean he actually read it! He may have just went on your text conversation and left right away, no need to stress!

In everyday English both could be used with the same meaning.

However, I believe that doesn't necessarily mean is using necessarily as a hedge adverb..

Hedge adverbs are used in English to express hesitation or uncertainty and also show politeness and indirectness.

In your example, doesn't necessarily mean indicates that the speaker is uncertain about whether the text message has been read or not. he is using necessarily to show his he is unsure.=uncertain= hesitant.
