It's very simple: some idiot at MS had an idea and everybody went "looks good!" without actually trying to use it.
Then, because MS is really, really bad at admitting a mistake and undoing it they push on with stupidity in the name of "UWP Progress" ... because "touch screens don't need scroll bars" since you scroll by "flicking" the screen directly.

BTW: there is no "hover" on Surface either.

You can undo (some of) it though: Open Settings, and go to "Ease of Access ... Display" and turn off "Automatically hide scroll bars in Windows". Some - but not all - of them will no longer hide themselves away. But this being Microsoft and one finger not talking to any of the others, some of them still ignore it.
