The autoincrement value is a number (an integer).
So, leading 0s does not mean anything.

If you want to have leading 0s displayed in your client / program,
you need to manually format the data to be displayed with leading 0s.
It shouldn't be difficult to do.

I confirm the above statement, leading 0000 are formatting, not data.

You can specify zerofill:

ALTER TABLE `table_name`
MODIFY COLUMN `column_name`  int(10) UNSIGNED ZEROFILL NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT FIRST ;
