Well, that's the SP expressing the multiple values that it received by delimiting them. That can happen because an actual multi-valued SAML attribute is received, or because there are multiple SAML attributes mapped to one attribute name/header in the SP configuration.

There is no option in the SP for turning a multi-valued set of data into one value.
