Comment (by joostdevalk):

 So this problem is caused by the fact that Google thinks it can create a
 better title for the page than we can and thus generates one itself. The
 reason for that is that the title we're generating is too long, it would
 look like this in the search results:


 I think we could prevent this by generating a title that's shorter,
 something like

 wp_delete_file() Function | WordPress Developer Resources

 To be honest, I don't even think we need the (), and that this could still
 be too long with longer function names, so an even better option would be

 wp_delete_file function | WordPress Developer

 Happy to provide more input if needed. [[https://yoast.com/google-page-
 title/|This article]] I wrote a couple of years ago might give more input
