Bug report #17671
Processing: use selected only for vector layer inputs

In processing, when one uses "Feature source" as input, there is a checkbox to restrict processing to use selected features only.
When using "Vector layer" as an input, this checkbox is missing.
It is a regression, since in the older QGIS version, this version was available as a global option (through Options --> Processing settings). Now this option is gone.
Not sure if this is a Processing/GUI or Processing/core issue or both?

[needs-docs][processing] Add tooltips to input types in modeler
...to help clarify for users what the different input types mean.
Fixes #17671, which is a result of unclear distinction between
the uses of vector features vs vector layer inputs.
