I'm on Linux and on Linux I would suggest to reset the schema

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ gsettings list-schemas | grep org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ gsettings list-recursively org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser | grep show-type-column
org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser show-type-column true
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ gsettings help | grep reset-recursively
  reset-recursively         Reset all values in a given schema

When googling for "FreeBSD" and "gsettings" with or without "man" I
don't get a man page for gsettings, but...

"pkg install -f gsettings-desktop-schemas" -

However, on Arch Linux the "gsettings" command is part of glib2 and
dconf is provided by a package named dconf. IOW if
gsettings-desktop-schemas are already installed and you need to manage
gsettings, you need to install a tool, either gsettings or dconf.

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ dconf dump /org/gtk/ | grep show-type-column
[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ dconf help | grep reset
  reset             Reset the value of a key or dir

This binary blob for GTK related configs is a PITA.
