Although wdio uses $ and $$ this has nothing to do with jquery and the jquery features are mostly not used in the tests. The only way jquery could be used in the tests would by inside of browser.execute() calls but I would not expect that very jquery heavy things are done in there.
So my suggestion is to remove the wikimedia/jquery rule-set from the tests/selenium/.eslintrc.json files and rather add "$": "readonly" and "$$": "readonly".
This would also have the advantage that we do not need to disable the no-jquery/no-global-selector rule in every selenium eslint file. ( Which in theory should not apply anyways since we're not dealing with jquery here :-) )
