Docs for optimizer_switch are incomplete, not all available values are listed

      Description

      The docs at https://mariadb.com/kb/en/server-system-variables/#optimizer_switch lists most of the possible values for `optimizer_switch`, but some are missing.

      At least condition_pushdown_from_having and in_to_exists are valid values in MariaDB 10.5 but the docs page does not mention them.

      For reference, here are all possible values for current stable MariaDB releases:

      Maybe Ian Gilfillan could review them?

      (side note: why are there 3 labels for documentation?)
