First of all we are assuming that their technology was similar to ours, Hydro carbon fossil fuel based, metallurgy and synthetics. Maybe it did get buried and it just hasn't been discovered yet or it has been discovered but not recognised.
Or not recognised by all, which is why this website exists.
Contrary to popular belief, man made materials have a relatively short life. fossilization is an incredibly fortuitous process.

You seem to be assuming that there can be only one genre of technically advanced civilization which would have been comparable to ours.
We also have no idea how long a hypothetical civilization existed for. 5000... 10,000 ??
It may be technologically alien, but not necessarily extraterrestrial.

Science is a journey in which decisions have to be constantly made. The problem with making a decision is that it excludes all other possibilities.
If you come to a fork in the road... Take both if you can.

If this possibility is properly explored then we may learn a great deal.
