MySQL change the charset
Allow to chose another charset when creating a database or do not set one.
Plesk does use:
"CREATE DATABASE databasename /*!40101 default charset=utf8 */"
And with this does overwrite when the MySQL config was changed to use utf8mb4 for example.
Or allow to choose a charset on creation or create DBs with:
"CREATE DATABASE databasename"
Thank you for your input. We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it is popular. Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.

Modern charsets should be supported fully with plesk and UTF8MB4 is absolutely mandatory
