The manual documents that the server must be restarted after using

"After running mysql_upgrade, stop the server and restart it so that any
changes made to the system tables take effect. "


Since MySQL 8.0 has the RESTART command, it would be natural and easy to
implement behavior to have mysql_upgrade restart the server
automatically by executing the RESTART command as a part of the upgrade

That would also be more user-friendly, see bug #79783, for example.
