We want to be able to configure a once-off delay before starting exponential increases with a low initial delay.

This would be used for bridge descriptors, client authority bootstrap, and test networks.

Follow-up to #20499, #20597, and #20534.

This is already how the code is written, but it doesn't work in most cases because we don't reset the download status before we use it, see #17750.
