Revert "src/Kconfig: enable USE_BLOBS by default"

This reverts commit a6b887e017f2310db79067b18b216036907b2d90.

It was brought to my attention that the 3rdparty/blobs/ repository
is full of licenses that don't adhere to our binary policy (that
demands unlimited redistribution rights). IANAL, but if the license
texts apply literally, it is not allowed to clone the blobs
repository without reading and agreeing to them.
