In Tables (not Views) setting a table that was previously single value columnType to a LIST does not wrap it in a list

Description

To replicate:

1. create table with a STRING column
2. fill table with some rows of data.
3. change the column to type STRING_LIST.

Expected:
row with value "myVal" is transformed into row with value "[\"myVal\"]"

Actual Behavior:
row with value "myVal" stays as "myVal" (standalone strings are valid JSON) and the unnested values index table (T123_INDEX_C456) for the list column is empty.
