App can access internet in airplane mode

I am totally confused right now. I am developing on Expo via Local connection, so my Android phone is connected to my laptop. I have turned off internet and enabled airplane/offline mode on both devices. Yet somehow, my app manages to successfully make requests to an API on the internet.

I want to test how the app behaves offline, but even being literally offline somehow does not do the trick. WHAT?
