Send audit data about sensitivity labeling to M365 administrators

When users apply, change, or remove sensitivity labels on their documents and emails, Office will send up audit data to the M365 audit backend for administrators to see. This is a silent functionality (no UI) for administrator benefit. Admins can view and search the data through the Activity Explorer or Audit Logs.
