Description

From #26791:

BCC recipients

Since each user gets their own mail, we can probably remove the setting to send mails with BCC completely. If plugins want to send mails to non-user recipients, we would have to make sure to either set the recipients manually on BCC or group them appropriately. It is not a required setting in Redmine core anymore though.

I agree, the setting doesn't make any sense now.

The setting has no effect since #26791 was implemented.

Agree. Also, #30787 can be closed now from my point of view if you don't refer to other problem.
