If an exchange partition is done on a table with a virtual column and the virtual column shows incorrect column statistics, then probably you are encountering this bug.
Test case to verify this
We can see that before exchange partitin, table t of column VIRT_COL shows value as 10000 and after exchange is shows value as 1 and also table t_x of column NON_VIRT_COL1 shows value as 1 and after exchange it shows value as 1000.
