### Contribution description

#12201 describes confusion on use of the nanocoap Packet and Buffer APIs for options relative to use of the nanocoap sock and gcoap application APIs. The issue is presently too much emphasis on the option APIs at the top of the documentation. This PR adds more emphasis on the application APIs, reduces the text on the option APIs at the top of the page, and describes the option API as a dependency of the application API. The goal is make it clear that the user need not independently decide which option API to use.

### Testing procedure

Build and compare the updated source documentation. There are changes to the nanocoap, nanocoap sock, and gcoap pages.

### Issues/PRs references

Implements requests in #12201. Also relates to #11488, which migrates application functionality from the base nanocoap library to nanocoap sock.
