I wonder what the difference is between a DSL in Lisp/Smalltalk and a framework or powerful library like React, Rails or Pandas as far as complexity and learning curves go. Is it that the frameworks and libraries are typically maintained outside the team, and if popular, are widely known?

Pretty sure this is it. A framework developed in the company can be a horrible thing; and avoiding it may be politically impossible, because someone important has approved spending a ton of money on developing it.
