Improve the Customizer header "placeholder"

Splitting this out grom #43151.

In #43151, all the Customizer "placeholders" used for the site logo, site icon, background image, and media widgets have been replaced with real <button> elements. For more details, please refer to that ticket.

There's one special case left though: the header image "placeholder". This "box with dashed border" looks like a clickable thing but it's not clickable. The header image control works in a very peculiar way and its "placeholder" is only informative. Also, it has a few different states, depending on the current setting (see screenshot below).

Its purpose is to communicate different states:

  • no image
  • randomizing uploader headers
  • randomizing suggested headers
  • finally, when a single image is set as header, it's replaced by the image

To remove the potential confusion, I'd like to propose the simplest option: just make it look not clickable. Making it look like an "info" notice (the one with the blue border on the left), would make it clear it just communicates the current state and it's not clickable.
