In Bug 18432 we standardized on using gender-neutral "they/them" pronouns in Koha. We missed a couple of instances in system preference descriptions.

Bug 22716: Use gender-neutral pronouns in system preference descriptions

This patch makes a few corrections to the .pref files which provide
descriptions for system preferences. Language like "him or her" is
replaced with "they/them" pronouns.

To test, apply the patch and check the following preferences:

 - OPACFineNoRenewalsBlockAutoRenew
 - ExpireReservesMaxPickUpDelayCharge
 - PatronSelfRegistrationVerifyByEmail
