Yes, it is possible. That Debian bug was special in that the options
used to be part of the Debian-shipped configuration file. The user who
reported the bug had edited the configuration file that was shipped
with the older version, so the Debian upgrade would notice a conflict
and ask the user what to do. Apparently the user chose to preserve the
original configuration (with the modifications), and as a result,
MariaDB Server 10.3 would fail to start up. I addressed this by adding
back these as string parameters, and issuing a deprecation warning
whenever any value is specified.
