For a junior building a portfolio project for example, I wouldn't worry about too much using tools that are an overkill. Many of my personal projects use React or Vue even if they could be simple static sites with vanilla JS. Why? Because it allows me to experiment and learn since my side projects rarely grow big enough to warrant the use of these tools.

In "real life" apps, I totally agree.
