Description

This issue has been discussed as part of two new upcoming changes related to settings:
#22734 Move SMTP / email settings to a dictionary
and
#17101 Add "checkdeploy" management command

where it was desired that related settings could be grouped in a parent dictionary.
The idea is that the user shouldn't then mandatorily define all setting keys to only change some of them.

Revert "Fixed #23384 -- Allowed overriding part of a dictionary-type setting"

This reverts commit 66757fee7e921ad4c35e0b3f80c25e026100b31c.
Discussions have led to think that this functionality does not
bring significant benefits to justify the added complexity.
