In order to have fewer changes from Wikidata show up in recent changes and watchlists on Commons we should enable fine-grained usage tracking there.

T171027: "Read timeout is reached" DBQueryError when trying to load specific users' watchlists (with +1000 articles) on several wikis
I’m not sure what this task is asking for… fine-grained usage tracking (at least the meaning of the phrase that I’m aware of) was enabled on all wikis in February 2018, and more recently we entirely removed this configuration from Wikibase and from the production config (1, 2), unconditionally enabling it everywhere. Is there anything still missing that I’m not aware of, or can we just close this?
Ah, then I think that’s something slightly different – as far as I can tell from the mediawiki-config git history, we never disabled fine-grained usage tracking on Commons after it was enabled (but it was also only enabled together with all wikis, not before), but at some point we stopped injecting recent changes on Commons (T171027), and that is in fact still in effect (on commonswiki and testcommonswiki, specifically).
I'd say let's create a new task. This one already has too much confusing history. A new task will make it clearer what this is about, also for the DBAs that have to make the call on the disk space available.
This task here is confusing and somewhat about multiple similar but different things.
As Lucas writes, "fine-grained usage tracking" has been enabled everywhere since 2018 and the very config option has since been removed.
It turns out there exists already a task for re-enabling Recent Changes injection on commons, since 2017: T179010: Re-enable Wikidata Recent Changes integration on Commons
However, we're still tracking Statements as part of the "Other" usage aspect on Commons. I've now created a task for that specifically: T294225: Enable Statement group usage tracking on Commons
