OK managed to catch it setting the submittedValue...

It's called by HtmlRenderUtils.decodeUISelectMany (line 201).

I think the problem is that because the component already exists and 
wasn't rendered on the first tab, when you change tabs the 
applyRequestValues phase for object fires.

Now because the object wasn't rendered but wasn't explicitly disabled 
when it fails to find any parameters relating to it, it assumes that the 
user has deliberately set none.

A better solution for cases like these (including the booleanCheckBoxes) 
would be to render a hidden input if the object is also rendered and 
then check for the existence of that. You could also use it to say if 
the object was disabled instead of relying on the object's disabled to 
remained consistent across the request. (I.E. asking was object disabled 
not is.)
