Actually, I find the opposite is true. It is relatively easy to avoid applying downward force while rotating, but due to the shape of the wheel and position of the finger, difficult to avoid an accidental scroll when the intention is to press the button.

I don't think this is something that can be easily solved by ignoring certain events, since it is impossible to know the user's real intention and we are as likely to frustrate the user as help them.
