Strange behavior I don't understand

i was trying to print and wanted to use micro steps to help adherence but i have noticed and this is not the first time the following
For example, the first layer and the current one had a height of 0.25mm and I wanted to help with micro steps by decreasing the separation between the bed and the extruder, but since there is no significant change, I reached -0.24mm of micro step and it turns out that the indicated height is z = 0.5mm, what am I missing?
I am using duet wifi with RepRapfirware 2.04, but I have seen that behavior in other firmware versions

As far as I know babystepping changes Z=0 datum, but leaves the current Z of the active Tool untouched.
If baby stepping would change both values you would not be able to change the relative distance between nozzle and bed.
That's right, the displayed height stays the same because the printer has to think it's still at the correct layer height. Baby stepping is just a slight nudge of the physical position.
