Use search.followSymlinks for all searches #37000
Pro: A nice lever for people to have when they are having trouble with symlinks e.g. from cnpm/pnpm. Also, if the user has indicated that they have a setup where it doesn't make sense for their searches to follow symlinks, then the same should apply for other searches.
Con: User settings should not impact extensions in this case
