This isn't the issue here.

To the best of my knowledge, Windows Search has never properly indexed the targets of symlinks or other reparse points. Back in Windows Desktop Search days it was possible to force WDS to do an initial crawl on the targets of symlinks (by adding the symlink to the index scope) but it could not then dynamically update the index when the target files changed since the file system watcher API could not detect changes.

Nowadays with WS in Windows 10, symlinks and other reparse points do not even appear in the UI to include paths in the index scope so that this source of confusion is eliminated.

Note also that the Git FS is not in use here, nor are cloud placeholders; it's all normal NTFS local files.
