I agree with most of your comment. You HAVE to learn one of those two to get a nice job but still, vanila JS gives you that bit of "Hey man, I'll take care of it" vibe on your projects ahah

Still, I guess React is more vanillajs*ish*, so maybe that's why many experienced developers choose it. Don't you agree?

I think that makes sense. Taking out JSX, React is pretty much a more organized way of writing vanilla JS.
And I can see how if someone is already very used to writing JS, putting the markup and the styling inside .js files will make them feel "at home".
Especially with hooks, nowadays React looks like your writing "just javascript"
