Description:
mysqldump --master-data silently ignores the case where server's binary log is disabled, resulting in no CHANGE MASTER statement in dump file, nor any warning that such is omitted.

How to repeat:
disable log-bin
mysqldump --master-data mysql user

Suggested fix:
Raise an error (unless --force) and halt with --master-data and disabled binlog.
