How to disable autoupdate for extensions?

Description of the issue:
Extensions seem to be autoupdating, which would allow a compromised extension to issue a malicious update that would be automatically downloaded, potentially violating privacy/security.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Install any extension;
  2. Do nothing;
  3. Wait for extension to autoupdate.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Extension is kept up to date without user intervention/consent.

Expected result:
Doing nothing should not result in extension being automatically updated. Or at least there should be a way to disable that and a button for manually updating extensions when updates are available.

Reproduces how often:
As frequently as extensions get new versions.

Brave Version(about:brave):
Version 0.57.6 Chromium: 71.0.3578.31 (Official Build) beta (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
yes
