Description (last modified by rmccue)

All of get_comment, wp_get_post_revision and get_term, have $null variables that are set to null and never changed, plus only used once.

These are artifacts from returning by reference, which was removed back in r21792.

In 27057:

get_comment(), wp_get_post_revision(), and get_term() all used to return by reference. Because of this, $null was set to null so the return value would be a variable where applicable. This has not been necessary since [21792], so the $nulls have been removed.

Props toszcze.
Fixes #24768.
