Biometric support for imported wallets

Description of the issue: Currently, Brave Wallet correctly allows biometric-based authentication for freshly created wallets, but doesn’t allow biometric-based authentication for existing wallets imported using its seed. It only allows password-based authentication, for no reason.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Create a wallet from scratch, see biometric request.
  2. Reset.
  3. Try to import the same wallet using its seed. See no biometric request and only password based authentication.

Expected result: Should be able to see similar biometric request and be able to unlock imported wallets using biometrics.
