.gitignore only impacts file which are untracked (that you've never
added or committed).  You can't ignore files that you've already told
git are interesting to you, even if you later add them to .gitignore.

This means someone already committed these files to the repository, and
you've now modified them.  They cannot be ignored.

If they were added to the repository by mistake (usually it's wrong to
add these kinds of build products to the repository, but different
groups do it different ways) then you have to run "git rm ..." to remove
them from your current version of the repository.  Then if they're
recreated, .gitignore will start ignoring them.
