RichText: clean up: remove paste timeouts #11978

This PR removes some unnecessary code. We are no longer using the TinyMCE paste plugin, so there is no need to wait for ranges to be set back or paste bins to be removed. We can also check whether a range is collapsed or not though the rich text value, instead of checking this.editor.selection.isCollapsed().

How has this been tested?

  1. Paste a URL over a word. The word should be linked.
  2. Copy an image from one browser (e.g. Safari) with right-click+"copy image" and paste it in Gutenberg in another browser (e.g. Chrome) to paste the image as data. There are other ways to do this, just paste an image cross application. Paste it once in an empty paragraph and once in the middle of text. Either way the image should be pasted correctly.
