Importing a table from Airtable base converts collaborator field

If I am in Base A and click the “+ Add or Import” button and select the “Sync data from Airtable base” option and select a table from Base B it brings in and syncs the table.

One thing though is single and multiple collaborator fields get converted to Single line text.

Is this expected? Is there a way to make it stay as a Collaborator field?
