This PR is competes the work from #86600

  • polish and refactoring
  • renamed settings as


  • auto switching happens when
    • event is received and 'window.autoDetectColorScheme' is true
    • a change to the preferred scheme is detected on startup and 'window.autoDetectColorScheme' is true
    • an active preferred theme is changed and 'window.autoDetectColorScheme' is true

'window.autoDetectColorScheme' is currently off by default.
