We have a sharepoint on-premises farm 2013. I have a choice column which display the choices as check-boxes and it contain one option only, as follow:-

enter image description here

but doing so have caused issues when filtering the item, as i were not able to know the items which do not have this checkbox unchecked. so i decided to chnage the above from checkbox with one choice, to be a Radio button with 2 choices (Yes & No), as follow:-

enter image description here

and everything went well, or example if i had a item which have the checkbox checked, then using the radio button, the "Yes" button will be selected automatically. but the issue i faced is that before changing the field type i defined to hide the column inside New form. but after changing the choice rendering from checkbox to radio button, the column started to show in the New form, and when i checked the column property using powershell, i can see that now the column have its ShowInNewForm = Null instead of False.

Before:-

ShowInDisplayForm              :
ShowInEditForm                 :
ShowInListSettings             :
ShowInNewForm                  : False
ShowInViewForms                :
FromBaseType                   : False
Sealed                         : False
CanBeDeleted                   : True

After

ShowInDisplayForm              :
ShowInEditForm                 :
ShowInListSettings             :
ShowInNewForm                  : 
ShowInViewForms                :
FromBaseType                   : False
Sealed                         : False
CanBeDeleted                   : True

so can anyone advice on this? why changing the choice type has overridden the ShowInNeForm property? Thanks
