"Click to add new row" in attribute table — OBJECTID shouldn't be editable (not even temporarily)

When using "Click to add new row." in the attribute table of a feature class or standalone table:

In that new record, I can edit the OBJECTID field. Or at least it appears that way.

When I click away from the new record, the value I entered in OBJECTID gets discarded and the system OBJECTID is used instead. Which isn't surprising.

But I don't think users should be able to enter/edit the OBJECTID in the first place, if that field is actually read-only. That's confusing for users.

Could that behavior be changed?

Thanks.

The same applies to the SHAPE column. It shouldn't be temporarily editable:
