 Avoid a PHP8 warning when xProfile user visibility levels are empty

 When the record does not exist yet into the usermeta table, getting the
 `'bp_xprofile_visibility_levels'` usermeta returns an empty string while
 we're expecting an array. As we use the expected array to reset the
 visibility level if the administrator enforced a specific visibility to
 the field, it's causing the PHP8 warning. To fix it, we are now casting
 the `'bp_xprofile_visibility_levels'` usermeta as soon as we get it.
