For comparison :
1) Start LO
2) Start the DB creation wizard
3) Choose connect to existing DB
4) Click on the dropdown menu
5) Observe the list of possible connections
7) Now, try File > Wizard > Address Datasource
8) Choose Other External Datasource
9) Click on Next, then Parameters/Settings
10) Click on the dropdown menu of available datasource connections
11) Note how the list differs to that above - it shouldn't they should be identical
12) Also note that there is no native mysql driver connection in this list, whereas the mysql native driver connector extension has been included by default since 6.2
Steps to Reproduce:
The dropdown lists are different. This is both wrong (from a coding point), and wrong from a UI perspective.
The dropdown lists should be identical. The address datasource wizard should use the same datasource connection possibilities as the New Database wizard and include the various msyql options.

So the only difference I see is one has MySQL (JDBC ) and the other MySQL.
What other difference do you see ?
BTW, why is it a regression ?
Sorry, I can't help here -> uncc myself.
Added comparison with LO4162, see screenshots

Datasource list of possible connections with Base wizard

Datasource list of possible connections with Addressbook definition wizard
The reason why it is a regression is that in the earlier version, all possibilities of connecting to mysql were displayed in the addressbook datasource definition wizard, i.e. JDBC, ODBC, native (if connector extension was installed), and yet now only MySQL(JDBC) is available.
