 I think this needs to be fixed with an exception in `wpautop()`, similar
 to object tags - the assumption is that flow elements inside of block
 elements (in this case, `<img>` inside `<figure>`), need to be wrapped in
 a `<p>`, but that's not the normal use case for `<figure>`, which is
 usually just an `<img>` and `<figcaption>` (in either order).

 Things get a little weird with spacing inside of block elements (see
 #38656), the tests for this should ensure that fun combinations of spacing
 and ordering don't make it go haywire.
