Absolutely true, but it has turned out to be useful, sometimes, to
recall this fact.

Yes, B is a list or sequence of sets of numbers.

You claim that B does not contain the set of numbers A. This claim is
false.

Proof: Consider the table T of numbers:

1
2, 1
3, 2, 1
...
n, ..., 3, 2, 1
...

Every line is a set of numbers, every columns is a set of numbers too.
(I drop the curly brackets.) The lines are the same as my set B, the
first column is the same as my set A.

You claim that A = |N but that no term of the sequence B is |N.

It is easy to see that for every *finite* natural number n, there is a
term of B that has the elements 1 , 2, ..., n.

Therefore B is a majorant of the finite initial segments (FISs) of A
*for all n* - and there is nothing else in A, by definition. This
cannot change by unioning its elements or FISs, because the union does
not change the elements and does not add anything that has been
missing before.

So your claim is false, unless you think that after all finite natural
numbers n something unexpected and infinite happens. But that is
matheology. And even if thousands of seemingly intelligent people
think so, there is no more reason for anybody to accept that than to
accept astrology or comparable nonsense.
