Content mimetype property not a String

Inside an Alfresco webscript, given a node, I get its mime type as follows:
var mimeType = nodeVar.mimetype;
// This is also valid:
// var mimeType =;

I get it succesfully, but the type of mimeType variable is object instead of String (as it should be according to the wiki). This can be checked by doing:
typeof nodeVar.mimetype;
I can change it to String by doing something like:
var mimeType = "" + nodeVar.mimetype;
But I would like to know if this is a bug or I'm doing something wrong.
