The terminology is that global-ignores apply globally on your
machine, regardless of what repository your working copy is from.

Ah, but you do not end up with useless objects in your repo if you
write a pre-commit hook preventing the commit of objects you consider
useless. The error message that your pre-commit hook prints can
inform the user how to set up their global-ignores to prevent the
situation in the future.
