Yes, it is. The trigger only increments a counter in M. And the counter is
not used for anything out of the node. It should be just locally monotonic.
So it is ok to increment it even on replica. After all this is how it
worked before.

But again, after this comment I had second thoughts, and decided to remove the
trigger when switched to replica to be consistent. See v2 in a new mail thread.
