[fdo-internals] PostGIS provider question about geometry_types in Autodesk Map

I have imported a shp files into postgis
in the geometry_columns table it inserted a type of "MULTIPOLYGON"
and a constraint 
enforce_geotype_the_geom CHECK (geometrytype(the_geom) =
'MULTIPOLYGON'::text  OR the_geom IS NULL);

In Autodesk Map i have 2 create command available
  Create Polygon
  Create Multi-polygon

When i use the "Create MultiPolygon" it works alright
but when i use the "Create Polygon" PostGIS raised a constraint error on the
geometry types
This is normal because it is not a MULTIPOLYGON but a POLYGON

So my question is
  Is it the provider responsability to modify the geometry from POLYGON to
MULTIPOLYGON on the insert command?
 Is it Map that should not expose the "Create Polygon" as the type in
geometry_columns is set only to MULTIPOLYGON?
