Obviously MySQL can implementUUID as a PK, eg ...

create table test(
  uuid binary(16) not null default ( uuid_to_bin( uuid() ) ),
  name varchar(100) not null default '' collate 'utf8mb4_unicode_ci',
  primary key(uuid) 

show create table test\G

  `uuid` binary(16) NOT NULL DEFAULT (uuid_to_bin(uuid())),
  `name` varchar(100) CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT '',
  PRIMARY KEY (`uuid`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8mb4 COLLATE=utf8mb4_0900_ai_ci;
Works also for char(36).

WB is a complicated, ornery beast, if it's a WB issue, I'll need to see the exact WB steps that lead to your problem.
