mysql output converting char(9) to '\t' (5c 74)

When I run mysql command line in Ubuntu, char(9) TAB is rednering \t in the output. The \t is not 009 but 5c 74.

Here are the examples:
$ mysql --defaults-file=my.cnf --silent << EOF
SELECT CONCAT("test", CHAR(9), "please");



$ mysql --defaults-file=my.cnf --silent << EOF | hd
SELECT CONCAT("test", CHAR(9), "please");

00000000 74 65 73 74 5c 74 70 6c 65 61 73 65 0a |test\tplease.|

What can I do to get the output to render 009. Is this the MySql client or Ubuntu?

Thanks for your assistance.
