This is likely because
simply checks for existence. Before you click the button, the field itself is undefined, when you click add, but dont input any values, Studio inserts an empty object. The field is now defined with
guide: {}
and since an object is truthy, it passes the validation check.
The solution to this is to chain some more validation-rules or to add a
if you want more granular control over what is a valid document and what isnt. πŸ™‚

Haakon is spot on 🎯 You could try something like this as a custom rule:
validation: Rule => Rule.custom(field => {
  return field.length > 0
    ? true
    : 'Required'
