See https://doc.powerdns.com/authoritative/backends/generic-sql.html,
section "Queries".

The custom statement will cause problems if you have dropped the
change_date column.

It is not clear to me why you have overridden the default insert query.

$ pdns_server --no-config --launch=gmysql --config | grep insert-recoird-query


# gmysql-insert-record-query	
# gmysql-insert-record-query=insert into records
(content,ttl,prio,type,domain_id,disabled,name,ordername,auth) values (?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?,?)

here. This should work both with change_date and without change_date
present. So drop the local config line.
