Also, for the desktop version of Ubuntu, enabling on demand socket activation would make sense.
That way the boot will be fast and mysql would only require resources when actually used.

Thanks for filing this bug in Ubuntu.

The mysql startup scripts are present in the mysql-server-5.7 package:

root@xenial-mysql:~# dpkg -S /etc/init.d/mysql
mysql-server-5.7: /etc/init.d/mysql
root@xenial-mysql:~# dpkg -S /lib/systemd/system/mysql.service
mysql-server-5.7: /lib/systemd/system/mysql.service

Please verify you have that package installed.
