Thanks for opening this ticket! However, I believe that these globals are included on purpose, as the function docblock says:

The globals are set up for the template file to ensure that the WordPress
environment is available from within the function. The query variables are
also available.

So, the globals are then available to the require(_once)d files.

Hi there, thanks for the patch!

As noted in comment:1 and previously in comment:5:ticket:59185, these globals should not be removed.

Closing as a duplicate of #59185.
