sievec fails to compile basic sieve scripts in 24.05

Since NixOS 24.05 even basic sieve commands such as fileinto need to be enabled explicitly with:

services.dovecot2.sieve.globalExtensions = ["fileinto"];

Otherwise, the sievec command will fail to compile sieve scripts with fileinto statements and as a result the Dovecot service itself will fail to start if the configuration contains services.dovecot2.sieve.scripts.
