With Azure AD join you do not need to join on-premises Active directory and basically indented for cloud-first or cloud-only organizational setup. However Azure AD can work with hybrid environment and you can access both cloud and on-premises resources or applications. Please refer to the documentation for details.
You can also refer to Plan your Azure Ad Join implementation documentation for additional information.

Hi,

with Azure AD Join, you can "manage" (all) devices of your company connected to the cloud.

Joined devices (hybrid or not) are considered as internal, so you can apply (or remove) some conditions, as being compliant, updated, with specific configurations (software, ...). So, after validation (of user & Computer), you can authorize them to do more things in an easiest way.

Mainly, AzureAD join allows you to manage mobiles, tablets (iPad,...) that can't be added to ActiveDirectory, but it gives the same management possibilities to AD Hybrid joined computers.

Regards,
