Optional configuration - No need to give example of default file created by iwctl

This edit in Optional configuration makes no sense because thats the minimal file that iwctl will create. So instead of giving example we should encourage to use iwctl.

Other examples are sufficient to indicate how to customize further.

In my case, iwd didn't accept my 64 digit passphrase. I'm sure all chars and special chars are in the valid range of a wpa2/psk passphrase, no of my other clients complains. So I used iwd to connect to a simple guest WIFI instead, and looked into the created config file as example, duplicated it and modified it for my real WIFI - which works.
The example in the wiki would be an blueprint for others who have the same trouble, or want to create a WIFI connection by script.
Maybe iwd:Troubleshooting would be a better place ?

Thats one off case. You probably need to ask upstream to fix it. Also you added it to Optional Configuration but your edit it not really optional configuration. Its a part of mandatory configuration which happens automatically by iwctl. May be others can opine too. Regards.
