Technically speaking, I believe the queries are simply invalid without the
presence of casts from the spec's standpoint.
Theoretically, I'd either expect both to give 0 rows (convert 3 into a
string and compare) or both to give 1 row (convert '003' to an integer and
compare) if it didn't error.
What does Oracle do if you insert a value like 'XXX' into the column?
