Description

I have a PostgreSQL layer with a wrong extent (not all the features are shown when zooming to layer - see #18879).
Running the "Extract layer extent" on it generates a new layer covering the wrong extent. I guess it's because it uses the extent information in the layer metadata instead of generating one beforehand.
Btw, maybe we can have a new algorithm that simply updates the layer extent (which will be called in this case but can be handy for models also)
