config: Do not compare for duplicate ORPorts with different addresses

We were just looking at the family which is not correct because it is possible
to have two explicit ORPort for the same family but different addresses. One
example is:

  ORPort NoAdvertise
  ORPort NoListen

Thus, this patch now ignores ports that have different addresses iff they are
both explicits. That is, if we have this example, also two different

  ORPort 9001
  ORPort NoAdvertise

The first one is implicit and second one is explicit and thus we have to
consider them for removal which in this case would remove the "ORPort 9001" in
favor of the second port.

Fixes #40289

o Minor bugfixes (relay, config):
- Fix a problem in the removal of duplicate ORPort from the internal port
list when loading config file. We were removing wrong ports breaking valid
torrc uses cases for multiple ORPorts of the same address family. Fixes
