I guess that's not easily available, you have to read the internals of the database but from my experience, I know that many database companies or cloud vendors adopted the consensus algorithms (Paxos or raft) while developing their native databases. A few of the ones that I know are PolarDB by Alibaba cloud, MySQL group replication ( they use Paxos). Not sure specifically about Raft.

AFAIK, almost every database software(and most of them are open source projects) has a Raft/Paxos mod internally to synchronize metadata.

E.g., 
I'm the maintainer of openraft in databend:

Starrocks has a Paxos internally.

Matrixone use dragon-boat, a multi-raft implementation, and has been trying to migrate to epaxos.
