I create a user field in a list definition thorough VS code (schema.xml).

<Field ID="{0A9DDA0E-1EB8-467B-AFFA-AFB04057FCF7}"  Name="ChannelManager" DisplayName="Channel Manager" StaticName="MyUser" Type="User" UserSelectionMode="PeopleOnly"

When I view the field in list settings, Show field it set to Account rather than name and value is showing as i:0#.w|domain\account
