log is documented as dynamic system variable but it is not accessible using following methods

SET @@global.log;
SELECT @@global.log

The following statement returns log as a system variable with a value of OFF

show variables like 'log'

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
It should be either accessible using the SET and SELECT statements or not available in show variables. Also if its not dynamic than documentation should be updated.
