Button reset on table focus

Something’s not working the way it seems like it should.

When a user …
Changes focus state to a table element

I saw …
Buttons reset

But I expected …
Buttons play state not to reset

Changing focus state to a table appears to automatically reset a button’s play state. This should not happen. It means animation play states are dependent on focus trapping, which is very poor UX.

Could someone please raise this up the chain to be rectified please. Thank you.
