Description

When there is only 1 layer in a GPKG / SQLite / FileGDB container file and you drag and drop the file in the map or you use the Data Source Manager / Vector dialog window to add the layer to the map, then the layer is automatically (without the "Select Vector Layers to Add..." dialog window appearing) added only with an incorrect source like

filepath\filename.gpkg

instead of a more correct

filepath\filename.gpkg|layername=name_of_the_layer

This could lead to annoying layers mixing ups / shuffling (see the already fixed #18081 and #19885).

On the contrary, when the layer in a single layer gpkg/sqlite/filegdb container is added to the map through the Browser panel instead, its source is in the correct form "filepath\filename.gpkg|layername=name_of_the_layer".

QgisApp::addVectorLayer(): add |layername= to OGR datasets (fixes #20031)

Do it also in case of datasets that have a single layer, in case they might
later be edited to have more layers
(except for a few drivers known to be always single layer)
