var_type in the act_hi_detail table always 'string'

I am trying to understand why this column's value is always null.  I was hoping that the data type would key off of the FormData's type.  However, even if I have a variable set to a "date", it will insert "string" as the type.  I'm not concerned with the value always going in the text column, but I'd at least like the type column to indicate the actual data type.

Is there a setting I might be missing?  Does this not pull from the form data's type?  If it does not, where does it come from so I can set it appropriately?

Please let me know if there is any other info I can provide.  I am new to Activiti, so perhaps I am missing something simple.

Ultimately I want to be able to get the correct data type from the HistoricVariableUpdates pulled back from the history service.
