I have added a checkbox column as per the suggestion here:

The main difference is I am not binding the checkboxes' values, and I reload the list at times.

The issue is if I check the box in any row - for example: Row 1,  then I reload the grid (with different data) - the checkbox in row 1 will still be checked, even though the list has been reloaded ( and populated with different data.

It is very odd behavior - is there any fix or workaround?

I created a dojo reproducing the behavior.

1. Check the box in Row 1  (or Row 2, it doesn't matter)

2. Click the "Reload Grid" button to reload the list's data.

3. Note that the checkbox is still checked.

The observed behavior is because the TreeList uses virtual dom diffing, which detects changes in attributes, but not props. This is basically a limitation of the rendering, so what I can  recommend is to manually reset the state on the "dataBound" event:

dataBound: function(e) {
    var treelist = e.sender;
    treelist.wrapper.find("[type='checkbox']").prop("checked", false);
