InDesign automatically replacing document-installed fonts with Adobe Fonts without warning

When I open an InDesign file that has been packaged with all the fonts (non-Adobe fonts) included in the Document fonts folder, if I happen to have the same version of the font activated in Adobe Fonts, InDesign automatically, and without warning, substitutes the Adobe Fonts version. This is a major problem. The heirarachy should be document-installed fonts FIRST, then InDesign can look in Adobe Fonts and suggest replacing it. This should not be done without warning in the background. It means that the person who was working in a Package workflow without using any Adobe Fonts can send a file to another person using Adobe Fonts, who unbeknownst to them, substitutes the font, then packages and returns the file, and now the font is missing from the new package when returned. This is a huge licensing issue at the very least.
