What is the "upload dialog" in zhwiki?

I'm afraid this is not doable by any existing configuration variable. Do you know about a wiki, that is configured as you want?

According to Upload dialog#Configuration (for wiki sysadmins), Manual:$wgForeignUploadTargets and discussion in T139257. I think setting $wgForeignUploadTargets = [] is what we want.
