HPA does not support AverageValue for Object metrics #72824

What happened: Specifying the averageValue for an Object type metric in the HPA has no effect.

What you expected to happen: The target scaled based on the number of replicas.

How to reproduce it (as minimally and precisely as possible):
Create an HPA with custom metric scaling on an object, for example an ingress like so:

 - type: Object
        name: requests-per-second|sample-custom-metrics-autoscaling-master-7
        apiVersion: extensions/v1beta1
        kind: Ingress
        name: sample-custom-metrics-autoscaling
        type: AverageValue
        averageValue: 5

And describe the created HPA. The metrics status is always shown as 0 because the value displayed is the target value which is never specified.

Anything else we need to know?:
The feature is describe in the docs but has not been implemented in the code here. Only the Value is used for calculating the replicas and the AverageValue is never used.
