MissingMetadataException: Can't seem to figure out where reflction is used

I'm trying to run my app in release mode, and I get the following output when the program crashes:

Exception thrown: 'System.Reflection.MissingMetadataException' in System.Private.Reflection.Core.dll

This operation cannot be carried out because metadata for the following object was removed for performance reasons:\n\n EETypeRva:0x0002E180\n\nNo further information is available. Rebuild in debug mode for better information.\n\n

I think I covered all NuGet packages to the .rd.xml file and tried to be as inclusive as possible, and the issue still persists.
Is there a way to pin down the source of the error, i.e. the source that uses reflection? Is there any analyzer for this?

Here's what the .rd.xml file looks like:
