Photoshop Merge to HDR Pro 32 bit mode and Toning in ACR issue.

I have run into an issue that I think is related to ACR rather than Photoshop. Currently, when I use the Merge To HDR Pro feature in Photoshop 23.3, the initial 32 bit HDR file created by the Photoshop "Merge To HDR Pro" feature ( set to 32 bit mode with "Complete Toning in ACR" ) is being converted to a 16 bit  file (defaulting to the color working space set in my "Color Settings" ) when I complete the toning in the Camera Raw 14.3 interface instead of remaining a 32 bit file with an automatic color profile of "ProPhoto RGB (Linear RGB)" being assigned that used to occur. I'm not certain when this starting happening but I do know that the "Complete Toning in ACR" process was leaving the file as 32 bit after selecting "OK" and returning to PS to update the initial 32 bit HDR file with Photoshop version 23.1.0 and Camera Raw 14.1. This phenomenon has seriously disrupted my current workflow and customer projects. Can anyone else verify this issue and, if so, can someone look into the problem?

This might help (it has with others making round trips from LR to PS through ACR and losing the profile):

Try resetting your Photoshop preferences. Press and hold Alt+Control+Shift (Windows) or Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) immediately after launching Photoshop. You will be prompted to delete the current settings. You can also reset preferences upon a quit if Photoshop is running by going into General Preferences>General>Reset on Quit.
