Yes, it is enabled:

mysql> show variables like 'log_bin';
| Variable_name | Value |
| log_bin       | ON    |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

I think that it is necessary for the MySQL replication and it is used by the read-only replicas. However, I don’t believe that you would be able to access them as this is a managed service.

Is there a particular reason why you need to access the bin logs?
