MySQL 8.4 Reference Manual  /  ...  /  Replication and Floating-Point Values

19.5.1.12 Replication and Floating-Point Values

With statement-based replication, values are converted from decimal to binary. Because conversions between decimal and binary representations of them may be approximate, comparisons involving floating-point values are inexact. This is true for operations that use floating-point values explicitly, or that use values that are converted to floating-point implicitly. Comparisons of floating-point values might yield different results on source and replica servers due to differences in computer architecture, the compiler used to build MySQL, and so forth. See Section 14.3, “Type Conversion in Expression Evaluation”, and Section B.3.4.8, “Problems with Floating-Point Values”.
