Database access is needed during collectstatic

My understanding is that collectstatic never needs the database so it should skip these checks.

Skip allowed content checks on collectstatic
Since 9a9a06f1e37f5367e36a24b9aa3aca6ca78dab53 DB access is always needed. In later commits this was extended with additional checks.
However, collectstatic should be a fully offline operation that doesn't access the network. As such, content checking is not needed.
Doing this allows the Foreman/Katello installer to run it more freely. The alternative is to add additional ordering. However, I'd argue that this is better and also slightly faster.
