This was fixed in 8.0.17 but unfortunately it appears this bug was not closed accordingly, here's the old v8.0.17 release note:

Added connection attribute support for the classic connector; new
connection attributes can be passed in with the "conn_attrs" connection
argument. Thanks to Daniël van Eeden for the patch. Example usage:

test_config = {'user': 'myuser', 'port':3306,'host':'localhost'} 
test_config['conn_attrs'] = {"foo": "bar", "_baz": "qux", "hello": "world"} _ = connect(**test_config) 

Default connection attributes are set for both the pure and c-ext implementations, but these
attributes are different due to limitations of the client library.

For general information about connection attributes, see

The conn_attrs option is documented here:
