FEATURE: enable tagging by default (PR #13175)

Over the years we have found that a few communities never discovered tags.

Instead of having them default off we now have them default on, ensuring that everyone finds out about them.

This is going to have impact on existing sites, but I hope it’s overall a positive change for them.

In theory this should be fine because migrations should be run before seed data, but I just want to confirm you tested this on an empty/pre-existing database manually and it worked?

Another approach that might work is to check the hidden setting bypass_wizard_check. It should be set once the wizard is complete for any forum.

Yes, it worked. However, @SamSaffron suggested to use migration data so I am switching to that anyway.
