In email.parser in message_from_bytes, update `strict` to `policy` (GH-9854) (GH-9918)

According to the versionchanged note, the `strict` argument was removed in 3.3 and `policy` was added, but the name of the argument in the paragraph wasn't updated.
(cherry picked from commit a5ca98537b9f3f5eeae9157b1548b741df3fbf90)
