I don't know why this is written ,  but when I checked this doc:

it seems pretty legid workload (no matter postgres, mysql, mariadb, oracle,hana,etc)   .

The only thing that comes to my mind is that usually DBs are quite valuable and thus a 'replica 3' volume or a 'replica 3 arbiter 1' volume should be used and a different set of options are needed  (compared  to other workloads).
