* have you ever considered to look at that file?
* what are the permissions for /opt
* what are the permissions for /opt/mariadb-data

Linux is not windows - if a parent folder don't have the correct
permissions no access to files below - as you start (correctly) with the
restricted user that's important

what does "stat /opt", "stat /opt/mariadb-data" and "stat
/opt/mariadb-data/my.cnf" say?
