Looking at code, we see some binlog functionality (e.g. expire-log-days) is ifdef'd depending on the HAVE_REPLICATION symbol. This is not normal.
HAVE_REPLICATION is meant for "this server is capable of being part of a replication setup: sending binlogs to a slave or receiving binlogs from a master". But binlogging is not only used in replication but also in archive recovery (rollforward), which should be possible in the embedded library.
The binlog (--log-bin) is available in the embedded library, but some parts of it like expire-log-days are missing.
This is only one example. One must scan all HAVE_REPLICATION occurences in sql/, and decide for each of them if the #ifdef should be there. The #ifdef should be there only for code which sends binlogs to a slave or code which receives binlog from a master or executes binlog events.

How to repeat:
look at the code.

      Bug #28786 binlog_killed.test fails: 'reset master' does not reset binlogging
      The test failed originally -- did not reset binlogging - for the reason
      identified by bug#15580.
      However it can not run on the embedded platfrom for yet another cause -
      the embedded can not KILL query.
      Fixed with adding comments to the test particularly addressing `reset master'
      to the mentioned bug.
