Why Native DOM event always reset React Component state

I know that the Synthetic Event, instead of the native dom event, should be the way to deal with interaction in React App, but I wonder why the behavior is so bizarre. When the React Event works well, and the dom event always reset the state to initial state.

import React, { useState, useEffect } from "react";
import "./style.css";

export default function App() {
  const [num, setNum] = useState(0);
  function clickMe() {
    setNum(num + 1);
  useEffect(() => {
    document.getElementById("app_btn").addEventListener("click", clickMe);
    return () =>
      document.getElementById("app_btn").removeEventListener("click", clickMe);
  }, []);
  return (
      <h1>Hello StackBlitz!</h1>
      <div>App {num}</div>
      <button id="app_btn">DOM click</button> <br />
      <button onClick={clickMe}>React Click</button>
