Add a FF for ES default_operator change

Merged Dmitry Gruzd requested to merge 233350-change-es-default-operator into master

What does this MR do?

This feature is behind the :elasticsearch_use_or_default_operator feature flag

Today our Advanced Search is defaulting our search queries to using "AND" as the default operator as part of the query syntax

This MR switches that to "OR" for all scopes except code search, the change is behind the feature flag and disabled by default.

FF rollout issue: #246500

#233350 (closed)


Does this MR meet the acceptance criteria?
