generateSitemap.php should remove __NOINDEX__ pages added via $wgNamespaceRobotPolicies or $wgDefaultRobotPolicies in LocalSettings.php

The following patches for the maintenance script generateSitemap.php from https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/620746 works (removed noindex pages from sitemap file) only for the behavior switch magic word (___NOINDEX___), but does not remove pages marked 'noindex' via the LocalSettings.php from the generated sitemap file.

I think there might be a solution to this because, if there wasn't, Wikipedia would have a problem excluding talkpages from its sitemap, which I think it doesn't: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Controlling_search_engine_indexing

Now, the wiki in question is by default noindex. Pages that are to be index have Template:INDEX added to them but the entire wiki is noindex by default, because: $wgDefaultRobotPolicies = true; in LocalSettings.php. Thus the desire sitemap solution is to generate sitemap for pages that has ___INDEX___ or Template:INDEX in them or that indicate 'index' in the HTML output of the page.

How does one skip redirects or namespace redirects that are add via the LocalSettings.php during sitemap generation?
