Which JGit version? I have a hard time figuring this out, but mentions, and the last PR there is That updated JGit to 5.5.0.

That JGit version had a problem with different timestamp resolution between the git
index and the filesystem. The bug was fixed in JGit 5.5.1. If you can, try updating
to 5.5.1.

Otherwise, perhaps it's line endings. Check that the files do not use mixed line endings,
and double-check your autoCrlf and other git config settings and .gitattributes related
to line endings.
