MySQL 8.0 Reference Manual Including MySQL NDB Cluster 8.0 Replication of the mysql System Schema

Data modification statements made to tables in the mysql schema are replicated according to the value of binlog_format; if this value is MIXED, these statements are replicated using row-based format. However, statements that would normally update this information indirectly—such GRANT, REVOKE, and statements manipulating triggers, stored routines, and views—are replicated to replicas using statement-based replication.
