transfer doc: move fetch.credentialsInUrl to "transfer" config namespace
Rename the "fetch.credentialsInUrl" configuration variable introduced in 6dcbdc0d661 (remote: create fetch.credentialsInUrl config, 2022-06-06) to "transfer". There are existing exceptions, but generally speaking the "<namespace>.<var>" configuration should only apply to command described in the "namespace" (and its sub-commands, so e.g. "clone.*" or "fetch.*" might also configure "git-remote-https"). But in the case of "fetch.credentialsInUrl" we've got a configuration variable that configures the behavior of all of "clone", "push" and "fetch", someone adjusting "fetch.*" configuration won't expect to have the behavior of "git push" altered, especially as we have the pre-existing "{transfer,fetch,receive}.fsckObjects", which configures different parts of the transfer dialog. So let's move this configuration variable to the "transfer" namespace before it's exposed in a release. We could add all of "{transfer,fetch,pull}.credentialsInUrl" at some other time, but once we have "fetch" configure "pull" such an arrangement would would be a confusing mess, as we'd at least need to have "fetch" configure "push" (but not the other way around), or change existing behavior.
