 Multisite: Do not check for `is_super_admin()` when trying to set user

 The checks were introduced in [22256] to prevent user settings to be set
 for super admins that were not a member of the current site. However the
 latter should apply to any kind of user, so the `is_super_admin()` check
 is redundant. Furthermore, removing these checks is necessary for the
 ongoing effort to get rid of `is_super_admin()` checks in general.

 Props chandrapatel for initial patch.
 Fixes #39199. See #37616.
