The more restricted patch is fine by me.

I suppose that to some degree [*] the main benefit of this patch is that
it offers an option that calls quit-restore-window.  For example,
without this patch, you can already configure things with
display-buffer-alist when org-src-window-setup is set to
`current-window'.  Say with

  (add-to-list 'display-buffer-alist
               '("^\\*Org Src" . (display-buffer-at-bottom)))

On exit, though, the window that was popped up remains.

And that makes me think that the current options that go through a
simple display-buffer-based call (current-window and other-window) would
benefit from calling quit-restore-window like your `plain` option does.
If you agree, perhaps it's worth adding another patch on top that does

[*] "to some degree" because the option added by your patch has the
    advantage that it'd work with display-buffer-base-action too.  Plus,
    I think it's good to have a dedicated option that points to

Hmm, weird.  I tried again (Emacs 26.3, vanilla config) and still see
the behavior I reported.  Oh well.

My only minor nitpick is that, in the places you write “'plain”, it be
more common to drop the leading quote, as `plain' and ~plain~ already
suggest a symbol.  (No need to reroll for that if no one else requests
changes; I'll touch it up when applying.)

I'll wait another day or so for others to comment before applying.
