That won’t really work because if you are searching for the post ID of 1 it will match 1, 10, 213, 891. All of these fields in the DB need to be updated to have strings, so you need to fix the source of the issue and then re-save all the posts.
The simplest way is to pass your array through strval() before updating
value = array_map('strval', $value);
