rauls5382 and hyangah runtime: sample large heap allocations correctly
Remove an unnecessary check on the heap sampling code that forced sampling
of all heap allocations larger than the sampling rate. This need to follow
a poisson process so that they can be correctly unsampled. Maintain a check
for MemProfileRate==1 to provide a mechanism for full sampling, as
documented in

Additional testing for this change is on cl/129117.

Fixes #26618
