Meaning that, if there are 4 active selection, the operation will be storing or insert the 4 value into Oracle table each row. So there will be 4 insert operation will be executed.

Please check below code:

declare
    tab apex_application_global.vc_arr2;
begin
    tab := apex_util.string_to_table (:PX_YOUR_ITEM);
    for i in 1..tab.count loop
        insert into YOUR_TABLE (YOUR_COLUMN_NAME, YOUR_SHUTTLE_COLUMN_NAME)
        values
(‘My List’, tab(i) );
    end loop;
end;

Please note that :PX_YOUR_ITEM is referring to your Shuttle Item name.
