I upgraded to 7.7.4 today and in re builders I find.
Update All Tables to UTF8mb4
Configuration settings indicate that you have aleady completed this action.

So I can't run the tool because it is disabled.

This feature is based on if you have the following setting enabled or not.
Control Panel > Paths & Database > Database

When you have it enabled, you have indicated that you've already transitioned your tables collations to utf8mb4 (eg. utf8mb4_general_ci), and thus, the transitioning tool is no longer needed. The message in the transitioning tool states the same.

Visit: Control Panel > Database Tools > Information
View the Collation column.
If the items within that column are not utf8mb4_general_ci, you need to:
1/ Disable (uncheck) the above setting.
2/ Run the transitioning tool.
3/ Follow the link at the bottom of the tool at completion which tells you to enable the setting you prematurely set.

But I did find it manually in languages/english/admin/rebuildcontent.php

That looks like it could be related to these from 2018.

The solution is to copy the faq.php file (mentioned above) from your archive, in to the same directory path on your forum install.
