Probably due to the recursion.

I tried doing a cleanup with the ‘Refresh shell overlays’ selected and the deleted icon remains. ‘Check for modifications’ still shows the directory and files ready to be deleted.

That's expected. All you have done so far is stop ignoring the files,
so they are still scheduled for delete. Your easiest option is to
rename that directory or move it somewhere safe, revert the deletion
of that directory (which will also throw away your changes), then get
rid of the restored directory and move your saved one back in place.
