 In response to @axelseaa:

 in the database)

 Do you know under what conditions that table is created? E.g. a specific
 original WordPress version? Under my multisite test environment
 (originated at 5.9.3, upgraded to 6.0) that table does not exist, though
 `global_terms_enabled` is set. I have test cats/tags from before/after the
 enablement of global terms, but haven't received any errors when updating

 I did see that the cat/tag UI changed with the setting in place, where it
 doesn't allow direct editing of slugs. Though in the database
 (`wp_N_terms` tables), I see that modified items are ''named'' with the
 updated value, but the `slug` field is assigned the ''old'' term name.
 This seems like it would be problematic as a different issue, but I
 haven't dug deeper into that behavior.
