docs: confusing heading "Add apt repositories"

Bug Description

While reading the docs and learning cloud-init for the first time, I noticed that "Add apt repositories" in the "Cloud config examples" section actually describes how to set the default apt mirror.

This was confusing to me, as I was looking for a way to add third-party repositories, which isn't shown in that example; I thought it wasn't even possible to add third-party repos until I scrolled down to "Additional apt configuration", where the way to do that is actually described.

I don't know if it's just me, but I was a bit confused by this. Maybe you could consider changing that heading to something like "Select apt mirrors".
