Yes, it does. The link was earlier in the thread.

The fact that it works means that MariaDB supports FIPS, right? :)

FIPS doesn't disallow SHA1.
As far as I understand, it only doesn't allow to use SHA1 for

you cannot. if you don't want to use SHA1, use a different
authentication plugin, for example, ed25519 or PAM.
