Thanks for reminding me of possible settings .gitmodules. Indeed I have

[submodule "scanners/scancode-toolkit"]
        path = scanners/scancode-toolkit
        url = https://github.com/sschuberth/scancode-toolkit.git
        ignore = untracked

in .gitmodules, which explains why globally setting
"diff.ignoreSubmodules" to "all" had no effect.
