No. Actually I never noticed such a page exists, thanks for spotting
it! I added a comment to the page that it is legacy.

As the WhichPackage is legacy, there is at the moment no actual plan
for mysql-5.6 or mariadb-10.0 to split into a server-utils package.

These files are in the package
I however don't know how compatible these different libraries are and
what headers are needed by what. In a comment to
https://mariadb.atlassian.net/browse/MDEV-5482 I asked George Richter
to see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=770650 and
comment how compatible mariadb_config and mysql_config are, but I
haven't got any reply yet.

Maybe I should simply make the libmariadbd-dev package to have
"Depends: libmariadb-client-lgpl-dev"?

Maybe mtr must be run in a top-level directory in relation to the test
files? It's guess this is ok now.
