A little digging, since I was also interested, reveal the following:

At the bottom of [1]:

Multiple SELECT statements generate multiple result sets, so the
client must use a MySQL client library that supports multiple result
sets. This means the client must use a client library from a version
of MySQL at least as recent as 4.1. The client should also specify the
CLIENT_MULTI_RESULTS option when it connects. For C programs, this can
be done with the mysql_real_connect() C API function. See Section, “mysql_real_connect()”, and Section 20.8.12, “C API Support
for Multiple Statement Execution”.

And digging around [2]:

Handling result sets

Stored procedures can return result sets. Result sets returned from a
stored procedure cannot be fetched correctly using mysqli_query(). The
mysqli_query() function combines statement execution and fetching the
first result set into a buffered result set, if any. However, there
are additional stored procedure result sets hidden from the user which
cause mysqli_query() to fail returning the user expected result sets.

Result sets returned from a stored procedure are fetched using
mysqli_real_query() or mysqli_multi_query(). Both functions allow
fetching any number of result sets returned by a statement, such as
CALL. Failing to fetch all result sets returned by a stored procedure
causes an error.

Example #3 on page [2] shows the use of retrieving multiple sets from
a stored procedure.
