isMaster command is a part of an authentication handshake protocol. Hence if the driver used __system user then it will fail on isMaster when trying to auth a connection as the __system gets a dummy signature by design.

3. pass needsSessionAndClusterTimeInit into readRequestMetadata and validate clusterTime if the condition met
