The property parser function and mw.wikibase.entity.formatPropertyValues should resolve item redirects when formatting Snak values
Open, HighPublic

Description

When a redirected item is being used in a Statement, both the {{#property:…}} parser function and mw.wikibase.entity.formatPropertyValues don't resolve the redirect but just show the entity id.
It seems more desirable to resolve redirects there and use the label of the redirect target if possible… also that's consistent with how the repo UI works.

This seems partially redundant with T157868, however I am not sure about mw.wikibase.entity.formatPropertyValues. I agree that Wikibase parser functions like {{#property:…}} should probably properly redirect, however, from Scribunto I would rather see mw.wikibase.getEntity and add a mw.wikibase.resolveEntityId implemented or perhaps also have mw.wikibase.getAllStatements and mw.wikibase.getBestStatements redirect.

If mw.wikibase.getEntity, mw.wikibase.getAllStatements and mw.wikibase.getBestStatements redirect one can at least determine which entity ID is the redirection target via returned "id" field.

This might get resolved by T112658, at least for the parser function.
