[iOS][Metal] "Can't set kSurfaceUseResolvedBuffer surface flag" errors appear when camera's clearing is set to depth only




Priority: 2Necessary for shipping a final release


Severity: 3Secondary functionality broken

When using a camera with depth only clearing and MSAA iOS build spams constantly this error: Metal: Can't set kSurfaceUseResolvedBuffer surface flag after it has been set as an encoder attachment if MTLStoreActionStoreAndMultisampleResolve is unsupported
Disabling MSAA, changing graphics API or changing camera's clearing solves this issue.

To reproduce:
1. Build attached project for iOS
2. Run it on the device
3. Inspect Xcode console

Expected result: There shouldn't be any errors in the console
Actual result: Errors spam constantly
