I need to change the bundle/type of some nodes. I tried https://www.drupal.org/project/convert_bundles but there was no way to select just a few nodes and change the bundle/type so I tried the very simple way:
$node = Node::load(123);
This seems to work: the content type of the node changed. But when I look at the field's database tables there is still the old type/bundle name in the column "bundle" for each field of this node. This only changes when I actually change the field in the node edit form and save it.
My question: does somebody know if there are any sideeffects when there are fields connected to a node where in the field's table is the wrong bundle name stored?
