You can achieve this *after* installing the relevant mysql* packages,
but you can't do this *at* install-time. Doing so requires stopping
the mysql-server service, editing the necessary conffiles (namely
passwd(5); see also getent(1)), moving the necessary directories from
/var/lib to /home, checking permissions, and so on.
