I wonder what problems they are solving. I've found using the native DOM api much more efficient and easier to maintain than using jQuery. Also I think React has exposed a new document model api so I can't imagine there is any use for jQuery in React.

There really isn't any use for it but people stick to what they know. In this case it was about Bootstrap functionality being called from React components using jQuery instead of the React Bootstrap packages.

This, and only this is the explanation of people using Jquery now days. (okay there are also some occasional "it makes it easier for me to support IE" situations, but still...)
