Unfortunately it's not possible.

Someone has previously made the same request as you, please check it out:https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/sharepoint/how-to-turn-off-the-email-suggest-when-file-sharing/m-p/1091705

If you want Microsoft to implement it in modern experience, you can submit new idea on SharePoint Feedback portal. Microsoft will take your idea into consideration if it is highly voted.
