Ownership issues with gdrive shared

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

We use rclone to transfer labs data to a shared Google drive folder.

We have large project files multiple TB, to overcome upload limits we either split the project across multiple users, or throttle the upload and use which ever account is free.

One thing I've noticed, when we modify a project directory, and subsequently want to sync the changes, if we use a different user account than the original upload, it seems to re-upload everything, rather than just the new/changed files.

I'm not exactly sure how rclone and gdrive handle ownership, and I don't seem to have been able to resolve this on my own I was wondering if anyone has any insights for this.

Apologies this is from phone due to some networking issues (unrelated to upload issues, someone nerfed my home router)
