Where does the data come from, and where is it going?

An array is a collection of key-value pairs.
A key can be any string up to 255 chars.
A value can be any data: string, binary, numeric, or another array.

So if you have an array value that is a string, and later replace it 
with another array, then the string will be gone, since the array is now 
in its place.
