From Stack Overflow:

To enable changing file owners & permissions, you need to edit
/etc/wsl.conf and insert the below config options:

   [automount]   
   options = "metadata"   

This may require restarting WSL (such as with wsl --shutdown) or the
host machine to take effect. This has been possible since 2018.

Also consider new method announced by Microsoft in 2018. This method goes into even more depth and involves the mount command.
