First of all, this is clearly not a Windows-specific problem, as the index
file *is* updated, and that is simply the same behavior as on Linux/macOS.

Visual Studio Code most likely does not look at .git for worktree changes.

be very surprised if it was confused by .git's filesystem attributes
If tsw is still confused, try adding
to your tsconfig.json.
