Polygon exported to WKB with "wkbExportDefaults" has type of multipolygon

See original GitHub issue

OperatorExportToWkbLocal doesn’t properly handle wkbExportDefaults - exported WKB has “multipolygon” (6) type written instead of “polygon” (3).

Here is reproducible example:

package ljader.test;

import java.nio.ByteBuffer;

import com.esri.core.geometry.OperatorExportToWkb;
import com.esri.core.geometry.Polygon;
import com.esri.core.geometry.WkbExportFlags;

public class WkbExportPolygonWrongType {
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		ByteBuffer byteBuffer = OperatorExportToWkb.local().execute(WkbExportFlags.wkbExportDefaults, createPolygon1(), null);
		// WKB Polygon type is 3
		System.out.println(byteBuffer.getInt(1)); // outputs 6

	public static Polygon createPolygon1() {
		Polygon poly = new Polygon();
		poly.startPath(0, 0);
		poly.lineTo(10, 10);
		poly.lineTo(0, 10);
		poly.lineTo(0, 0);
		return poly;

@ljader Thank you, I’ve submitted a PR to fix the typo: There is no bug I think, but the typo is misleading.
