What's the reason for the different P-mode shutter speeds between the electronic and the mechanical shutter on the Olympus M10 ii?

When I use the P mode on my M10 Mark ii, the shutter speed seems to default to around 1/125 when using the mechanical shutter and to a much lower 1/30 when using the electronic shutter?

Might there be a reason for this, or is it something arbitrary?

It ends up as a quite handy way to switch between "P-mode for movement, P-mode for quietness "
