I was wondering from some time why our maintenance telemetry was reporting 100% success when we instead got bug reports that it could have solved.
Now I found why, we are setting places.database.lastMaintenance for any task in PlacesDBUtils. That also includes telemetry report that happens daily. So we basically never run it :(
This is quite bad.

Should we add another check to ensure the pref is *not* touched when running other tasks?

[Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: unit test
[Risks and why]: low risk, this only moves setting a pref
[String/UUID change made/needed]: none
