You didn't get my point: Your log file shows that you are using
local fonts that you installed manually and not the one from texlive
and these fonts seem to be broken. The texlive list is the wrong
place to ask for this. Remove the local fonts and try without them.
Or try e.g. on overleaf where your local fonts can't interfere.

Well according to your log EBGaramond12-Bold.otf and
EBGaramond08-Bold.otf was used and that seems to be the problem.
Apart from this: the fontspec documentation describes how to select
optical sized fonts.
