The most common way you can change a field value on a content entity is this:

This works well with fields that have only one value (cardinality == 1) and behind the scenes essentially this happens:
This one value gets transformed into a raw array of one value because we are dealing with a list of items and the first item receives the changed value. If the field has a higher cardinality and we pass only one value as such, we essentially ...
