Data Type Change in Clip Raster by Mask Layer

In the Clip Raster by Mask Layer tool the default GDAL console call includes the -ot parameter with a default value of Float32. I believe this is unnecessary since in the absence of the parameter the input data type will be preserved. This could also be problematic when, like in my case, clipping a Byte raster without editing advanced parameters yields a Float32 raster. This will then break other tools like r.stats when trying to do pixel counts.
