Extract by Mask Tool Changes Raster Pixel Type

I'm running the Extract by Mask tool in a model that extracts an integer land cover raster to a smaller file inside a file geodatabase. The output raster's Value field changes to double, creating a problem for the following Raster to Polygon tool that only convert integers or strings. I have a string field to use as a workaround and I will try writing the extracted raster to a location outside a file gdb, but I'd like to know why this happens. I appreciate any help you can offer.
