Hi Niko. I tested again. I installed Extra Userfield-V1.2 to Q2A-V1.5. I can't reproduce the phenomenon of Niko. "SS6" is qa-page-user.php. There is two change. Check changes part once again. Moreover, when checking SQL, use debug option of QAROOT/qa-config.php.
  define('QA_OPTIMIZE_LOCAL_DB', true);  // false -> true
  define('QA_DEBUG_PERFORMANCE', true);  // false -> true
Right SELECT query is ...
  SELECT fieldid, title, content, flags, position, extra FROM qa_userfields
Finally, If screenshot exists, post to answer instead of comment.

The remodeling below is necessary in V1.6.x, too.

qa-include/qa-page-admin-userfields.php (type field at L198 [case V1.6.2])

// replace [start]
//'value' => @$typeoptions[isset($intype) ? $intype : (@$editfield['flags']&(QA_FIELD_FLAGS_MULTI_LINE|QA_FIELD_FLAGS_LINK_URL))],
'value' => @$typeoptions[isset($intype) ? $intype : (@$editfield['flags']&(QA_FIELD_FLAGS_MULTI_LINE|QA_FIELD_FLAGS_LINK_URL|QA_FIELD_FLAGS_CHECKBOX|QA_FIELD_FLAGS_SELECT|QA_FIELD_FLAGS_RADIO))],
// replace [end]
