We don't want to perform any load balancing operation on them, we just want to be able to redirect to MySQL instances based on a logical name, same as on http.

If by logical name you mean TLS SNI then it is possible.  You need to use the
ssl preread module:

I can only assume that the MySQL port you connect to does not expect TLS
connections.  You should probably connect to a different port when proxy_ssl
is enabled.
