 As from @hellofromtonya’s comment in the existing PR, moving the widget
 position from 7 to 8 will probably introduce other regressions, so it’s
 better to try to find another option, something doable for a point

 I’d suggest to go with @ironprogrammer’s proposal:

 > Another option could be to remove the static position of that menu item.
 It would then fall in place where it currently is in a classic theme, or
 be “pushed down” by any extenders who are attempting to prioritize new
 menu items or set an explicit order. Worst case in this scenario is that
 “Widgets” doesn’t appear in an exact slot. But the benefit is that it
 would no longer be subject to being overwritten due to specific indexes.

 …and we can still use a wp_is_block_theme() check to make sure this is
 only applied to block based themes.
