To prevent a host from automatically connecting to a network that
was previously available and connected to, but is not at the moment,
due to distance or the network being off.

This may be done because of a change of ownership of a host, or a
change in the trust level of a network.

Is there any way at all to restore that security feature after
removal the "Discard network history" button?

Gnome provides a list of networks in a dialog and allows them to be
removed individually.  "Edit Connections".
