Note the deterministic behaviour from the manual:

A routine that contains the NOW() function (or its synonyms) or RAND() is non-deterministic, but it might still be replication-safe. For NOW(), the binary log includes the timestamp and replicates correctly. RAND() also replicates correctly as long as it is called only a single time during the execution of a routine. (You can consider the routine execution timestamp and random number seed as implicit inputs that are identical on the master and slave.)

How would you make use of this inside of Django (and Django Admin) i.e. where would you add the SQL?
