SpreadSheetPlugin#FuncLIST documents this: "Convert the content of a range of cells into a flat list, delimited by comma. Cells containing commas are merged into the list."

The actual implementation does not merge a comma-space delimited list in a cell, it is taken it verbatim. In most cases it does not matter unless the array size is used.

Test case:

A: B: C: D: E: $LISTSIZE($LIST($LEFT())): Expected:
a b c d e 5 5
a b c d, e, f g 7 7
