See page 9 of the datasheet:
These regulators are not internally compensated and thus
require a 1.0 uF (or greater) capacitance between the
LP2950/LP2951 output terminal and ground for stability....
In other words, the output capacitor is required, it will not work without an output capacitor. There's more evidence of this in Figure 17, which shows a "stable region" based on output capacitance between 0.1uF and 100uF as a function of the output capacitor's Effective Series Resistance (ESR). Basically it should be between 0.1uF up to 100uF.
Your calculation of 33mA load current (3.3V / 100ohm) is correct, and would be OK if everything was stable and the regulator was working correctly. But without the output capacitor, the circuit is not stable, and your DVM is not able to accurately measure what's really happening.
It's hard to explain at a beginner level why input and output capacitors are required (without going beyond Ohm's law and algebra into AC circuit theory, calculus, and control loops), but basically the regulator adapts to variations in the input voltage and load current, trying to maintain a nearly constant output voltage. Capacitors help prevent sudden changes in voltage. Without them, the regulator may be oscillating -- you won't be able to see that without an oscilloscope, may be too fast for DMM to measure, but one symptom is the voltage measurements out of regulation.
DC circuits theory alone (Ohm's law, KVL, KCL) only models how things work when everything is stable, you need AC circuits theory to model what happens when things are changing. But you can get some intuitive idea of how the quickly the regulator reacts to changes by examining figure 10 Line Transient Response and 12 Load Transient Response, which show typical response times during which time the regulator is adapting to a change in the input voltage or output load current. These oscilloscope graphs show events that happen in a fraction of a second, whereas your DVM measures only 2-3 readings per second, so this detail cannot be seen with a DVM.
Normally in PCB design we use a large bulk aluminum-electrolytic capacitor (like 10uF to 1000uF) where power enters the board, and then smaller individual bypass capacitors (like 0.1uF ceramic) close to each individual IC. This is a pattern you'll see on nearly every successful design.
