Adds feature flag to disable package events

Merged Giorgenes Gelatti requested to merge 205578-feature-flag-pkg-events into master

What does this MR do?

Recently, it was introduced package events tracking using the database for later collection using usage ping. These data are growing a little too fast so I'm turning it off until we have proper management in place (#267098).

This MR introduces a feature flag to disable the package events collection using the database. There's no impact since these data are still not in use.

Screenshots (strongly suggested)

Does this MR meet the acceptance criteria?
