[1.7.x] Revert "Improve cookie based session backend docs." refs #20418

This reverts commit d9c01da.

This is poor advice as it breaks the test client login (refs #22934).
We can add a note like this back after refs #22986 is resolved.

- When using cookies-based sessions :mod:`django.contrib.sessions` can be
- removed from :setting:`INSTALLED_APPS` setting because data is loaded
