licencing of mariadb and mysql dot net connector


I agree with one of the previous posts that licencing is such a tricky aspect of IT. I read in previous posts that when using mariadb with the odbc framework that you can distribute both the odbc connector and mariadb with your closed source commercial application. It said in the post if you use a framework to access the database then both the connector and mariadb are free for commercial use. What about dot net? Dot net is a framework through which you can access mariadb? Does this mean that both the dot net connector as well as mariadb are free for closed source commercial use? I suppose the downside is that you can't use any mariadb specific features if you are using the mysql connector?
