Seems like most file format in MySQL is covered in upstream libmagic / file:


I would suggest to remove support-files/magic from MySQL sources and
refer users to upstream file /libmagic.

I think that's a perfect solution.

Fixed in 8.0.15.

The support-files/magic file was removed from the MySQL source tree.
Most MySQL file formats are covered by operating system file type
