Description:
JSON_VALUE() accepts path parameter when string literal provided but fails if an expression is provided.

How to repeat:
CREATE TABLE test (`order` JSON)
SELECT '{"id":1,"price":123}' `order`;

SELECT JSON_VALUE(`order`, '$.price') price
FROM test;

-- output: price = 123

SELECT JSON_VALUE(`order`, LOWER('$.price')) price
FROM test

-- output: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'LOWER('$.price'))
FROM test' at line 1

Can confirm in 8.0.23 I tried

json_value(my_json, CONCAT("$[",y,"].QTY") )

The above does not work
