after some time i am finally looking into this again.
The lookup field refers to an attribute of another list. Therefore changes to that attribute do not affect the modified date of the document or the document collection.
Do you see any possible solution in the connector for that problem. Or is it something that should be handled on sharepoint side?

If it's computed from other attributes, then don't the other attributes need to change in order for the lookup attribute's value to change?

Such fields do not change the modified date.
We could re-index all list items, when the list itself is modified (by carrying down the modified date of the list for example). But this would probably lead to too many unecessary version changes for other lists.
I will check, if there are possibilities to detect lookupfields with the API.
