I did just test the newest mysqldump version against MySQL 3.21.32 and
MySQL 3.22.27 and it worked in both cases.

This is rather strange as the mysqldump version is 8.12 and there
wasn't any changes since 8.11 concerning this!

Any change you can get us the entries from the mysqld server log
(mysqld started with --log) so that we can check what questions where
sen to the server?

mysqldump works by first sending the query:


to the server. If it doesn't get an error for this, then it assumes
this is a new mysqld server and will use SHOW CREATE TABLE to get the
table structure.  In other cases it will use the old portable way to
create the CREATE TABLE statement.

In this case it looks like the server is accepting the SET OPTION...
statement, which should not be the case.

Can you verify that you do get an error for your 3.22.32 version if
you do:
