This construct looks ok to me. In MySQL, 0 or NULL means false and anything else means true, here is the test case:

mysql> select 1 IN (1,NULL), 1 IN (2,NULL),  1 IN(2,3), NULL IN(2,3);
+---------------+---------------+-----------+--------------+
| 1 IN (1,NULL) | 1 IN (2,NULL) | 1 IN(2,3) | NULL IN(2,3) |
+---------------+---------------+-----------+--------------+
|             1 |          NULL |         0 |         NULL |
+---------------+---------------+-----------+--------------+
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

can you please explain what's your concern?
