Description

Now #50052 (plugin and theme auto-updates) is merged into core, let's add some help tabs that explain what auto-updates are and how the UI works.

The text in the tab should be pretty short, probably with a link to a (yet to be written) article on HelpHub.

Among other things, it should mention that what is displayed in the UI is not 100% guaranteed to be what happens when WP_Automatic_Updater actually runs.

For reference, this the original issue on GitHub: ​https://github.com/WordPress/wp-autoupdates/issues/105

…and the related pull request, which is already merged into WP Auto-updates plugin: ​https://github.com/WordPress/wp-autoupdates/pull/121
