Yes they are.

MariaDB is a clone taken from the MySQL code base when Oracle acquired it. So now there are two products. And more specifically two different development branches which are different. The branch wasn't a recent one either.

So upgrading from MySQL to MariaDB is a product change. And likely a disruptive one as well.
Compare this to AWS Aurora which is also a different product but one that promises binary equality.

Might also note, my impression (without any research) is that stored procedures might be impacted the most.

That said if you are not tied to MySQL for marketing reasons then my gut would say that MariaDB might, in general, be a better product. If for no other reason then Oracle absolutely will pour more money into their commercial MySQL offering than they will into the open source version.
