"Expire Sticky Posts" plugin doesn't work in block editor
It only works in the classic editor.

expire-sticky-posts plugin is old and hasn't been updated in seven years: https://wordpress.org/plugins/expire-sticky-posts/.
Regardless, I've added support for the block editor: https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/cac/commit/0d3613e214da2479d0bb55fca0a14e82d6bbf0db.
It will display in the block editor's sidebar after the "Discussion" option:
Fix will be ready after tomorrow's maintenance release. (I might add a pull request to the plugin author's Github repo: https://github.com/avondohren/Expire-Sticky-Posts, but I doubt there will be a new release.)

Thank you, Raymond! There's another one (https://wordpress.org/plugins/sticky-posts-expire/) with a release 7 months ago, but apparently it also doesn't support the block editor.

I still don't see the option on, e.g., https://khatchad.commons.gc.cuny.edu/wp-admin/post.php?post=5029&action=edit.

It shows up for me.
In the Block Editor, can you click on the three vertical dots menu located in the top-right corner of the page? Then click on "Preferences", followed by "Panels". Can you check and see if the "Sticky Expires" panel is enabled or not?
I've also attached a GIF for a walkthrough:
If you are still encountering a problem, I remember you were using wordpress.com and Jetpack to login and edit posts for the Commons there. If you are editing through wordpress.com, can you try logging into the Commons instead?

I see this currently (see attached screenshot). I checked the panels as you described. "Sticky expires" is enabled. As I am using https://khatchad.commons.gc.cuny.edu/wp-admin/post.php?post=5029&action=edit, it's not being edited through wordpress.com.
Ah, I see it all the way down on the bottom. Thanks.
