Enable feature flags to resume artifact removal on self-managed

Albert Salim requested to merge 353128-enable-feature-flags into master

What does this MR do and why?

Enable Feature Flags required to resume artifact removal on self-managed by default:

  • ci_detect_wrongly_expired_artifacts
  • ci_destroy_all_expired_service

For self-managed users to be able to resume artifact removal, they need both feature flags enabled. However, SaaS cannot have ci_detect_wrongly_expired_artifacts enabled, because we want to remove non-trace artifacts on SaaS as well. The reason for that is detailed in the linked MR comment.

As a result, there are 2 permutations of the feature flags:

Environment ci_detect_wrongly_expired_artifacts ci_destroy_all_expired_service Feature flag source of truth
SaaS false true - only after background migration is completed chatops
Self-managed true true yaml

In order to release this change safely, without inadvertently enabling the flags on SaaS, we need to ensure that the 2 feature flags have been explicitly disabled on production through chatops.
