Really in a static site you may have a complete React app which calls apis. It's just that a part of the UI is prerendered on the server so that it has a better TTFB and SEO, but a static site may host a dynamic application which launch queries on the client: it's static because it is pre-rendendered on the server, but you still have dynamic javascript on the client.
For example, with React Bricks CMS (reactbricks.com) the starter projects have a static generated (Gatsby or Next.js) frontend, but a /admin folder with a full React application to edit content.
