Taxonomy: Ensure consistency of `hide_empty` in term queries when `ta…
…xonomy` is excluded. When querying for terms in hierarchical categories using `hide_empty=true`, results have historically included parent terms which are themselves unattached to any objects (are "empty") but which have non-empty descendent terms. Because this process involves walking the descendant tree, we avoid it when we detect that the queried taxonomies are not hierarchical. (This behavior was introduced in .) When the `taxonomy` parameter of `get_terms()` was made optional - see #35495,  - it affected the mechanism for avoiding unneccessary tree walks, since there may not be any explicitly declared taxonomies to run through `is_taxonomy_hierarchical()`. As a result, term queries excluding `taxonomy` did not check descendants, and empty parents with non-empty children were not included in `hide_empty` results. We correct the behavior by crawling term descendants when the `taxonomy` argument is absent, which means that we're querying for terms in all taxonomies. Props smerriman.
