The .gitignore file provided by Github (at least I think it was provided by Github) also lists Binary Files. Is there a reason you didn't ignore them?

Binary Files

Binaries/*
Plugins//Binaries/

We tested it with the Unreal Engine 5 project Valley of the ancient. The default gitignore file did not work, because Unreal needed some modules to start the project. So when a collaborator was pulling that project, he could not start it. Removing Binaries and Plugins solved that problem for us. It can be that it's because of the "Plugins" folder only, but I would need to investigate further.
