Investigate changes in SERVER-57426: Enable zstd compression for time-series collections by default

      Description

      Downstream Change Summary

      The default compression algorithm used for time-series collections is zstd. Time-series collections ignore the global default (snappy) but can be overridden when creating the collection itself.

      See test for example/behaviour: https://github.com/mongodb/mongo/blob/5476797a46b28156134fa7f13c15cd34f9e6ceb9/jstests/noPassthrough/timeseries_block_compressor_options.js

      Description of Linked Ticket

      Create time-series buckets collections using the zstd block compressor.

      Use the following collection options config:

        storageEngine: {
          wiredTiger: "block_compressor=zstd"
        }
      

      Any user-supplied storageEngine config when creating the collection should take precedence.
