Back snapping of the scroll slider

Hi!
First of all: I'm not a programmer, but an enthusiastic Windows user. I'm trying to get a hard to find answer on the following question.

When I’m working in a window of File Explorer or a random application and I want to scroll up/down or left/right in this window with the mouse, the scroll slider snaps back to the starting position when I move the mouse pointer beyond a certain distance of the slider.
See this example.

Why is that? It’s quite annoying.
In macOS I can move the mouse pointer wherever I want on the screen without this snapping of the scroll slider.

I know it is possible in Windows 10 to drag the scroll slider without this back snapping, because the scroll slider of a random Windows Settings window proves this. For example: Press Win + I and choose For Developers. No problem here. See this example.
I cannot find in Windows Settings an option to 'unsnap' the scroll slider. (Maybe my request must be altered in the Registry.)

Can someone help me to solve this issue?

ThnX in advance! :-)

PS Prior to posting this thread I had to add soms Tags. I'm not sure what tags to enter. So the entered tags may not refer to the subject. Sorry for that.

Are you using external mouse or is it build-in mouse (e.g. laptop)
Try use different mouse and see if the problem persist?

On other fora where I dropped this question I get the same answer.
This not a pointing device issue, but an OS issue.

Yes, the answer below is correct : it is in the scrollbar code and cannot be changed.
The code for uwp is not the same and is more recent

This is the standard behaviour for Scrollbars in Win32 applications (like Explorer, Notepad, ...),
which is different for UWP applications (like Windows Settings, Sticky Notes, Calc, ...)
