Why would a manager want you to stay, even if you're bad at your job & you could be easily replaced?

Just curious why some managers do this.

There's been times where I've said things like:
"could i book off a month, since i don't think I'm needed much?"
Or "I've had another job offer" etc...
Or "I'm not really enjoying this at the moment".
Or "i need to reduce/change my hours"
The manager's reactions to it are odd πŸ€” cos it's like a sad reaction, mixed with a 'i dunno what to say' reaction?
... I've been at the same job for around 10 months,
I haven't been sacked for doing stupid things/not taking some things seriously enough. (It surprises me that i haven't been fired already)

Why wouldn't a manager sack you?
& why would they seem sad/try to persuade you, even if they could easily find someone better at the job? πŸ€”
The manager has some sort of emotional attatchment / feelings for the employee?
