See the last comment in MDEV-6459. Kristian wrote
I have noticed that binlog sizes and offsets have a tendency to use
32-bit values around the replication code (which is generally wrong
for file offsets). I suspect that there are other bugs related to this
Using ulonglong by default when adding or otherwise changing code
seems a reasonable approach to me, where there are no performance
concerns that would suggest using a 32-bit type (and that does not
seem to be the case here).
