I still don't know if it's a good comparison, by nature of how simply CSS is structured and what it's used for, which is styling, you don't really need a framework. I need only 3 lines of CSS to place an element anywhere in a page. I think this is a feature, not a bug.

Even if they did, do things like Bootstrap, Tailwind not count? Or tools like SASS or LESS? They do what something like jQuery does, which is provide shortcuts/pre-written elements so you don't have to.

I don't know, it just feels like a desire to add complexity – trying to make CSS feel like a 'real boy'/language–that it doesn't need.
