Eh I see where you're coming from, and most interviews are this way, but I've definitely seen and organized interviews that eschew leetcode problems for very simplified every day problems, and at least imo they can tell you a decent amount. Have 3 or 4 of those in varying skills and you can get a pretty decent idea.

coding portions of an interview should probably be considered as like a bloom filter. it doesn't tell you for sure whom to hire, but it can certainly expose whom not to hire.
