Whats the value of 'Unassigned', or the Assignee field in general?

Many condition/validators (such as the Value Field condition from JIRA Suite Utility) allow for the comparision of values of fields. Whats the value of the Assignee field? I assume, that if it is assigned, it is the username ofthe assignee (as a string). What's the value of Assignee field if the issue is unassigned?

Many thanks!

If Unassigned, the assignee field value is empty or null.

It's equal to null. A validation error is thrown if you expect an empty string.
