Description:
Currently our Field unit tests often use one buffer for storing values and a separate buffer for storing null.
This makes future refactorings (e.g. changing how both values and null are stored) more difficult as it is
different from how Fields work in the server.

We should instead have Fields in unit tests use the same buffer for both values and null.

How to repeat:
n/a
