locale switcher: switching to `get_locale` is useless

With the introduction of the locale switcher in [38961], we've implemented 3 core switches that use get_locale() as the locale argument:

switch_to_locale( get_locale() );

delete site email

Switching to get_locale() is useless because locale gets filtered by the locale switcher, which will use the last locale switched to as the return value. So we're just switching to the current locale (if no locale switch has ever happened) or to the current locale again if we did switch.

Why should it be useless if a user locale is X but the site locale is Y? How would you make sure that the emails are sent in the language of the site?

Bah, you're right! I was missing something while testing here, the test actually passes with current code. Sorry!
