ACR Spot Removal backward compatibility

I've been using Photoshop CS5.1 with ACR 6.7 for many years now, but just upgraded to CC. The old version of ACR used Process Version 2, and I was expecting full compatibility with the new software.

 

While this has generally been the case, there seems to be a serious omission: spot removal instances in my files are not being seen in ACR 12.4. Considering I've edited thousands of DNG files, and many were shot at small aperture that required removing dozens of dust spots, this is a critical problem.

 

Am I missing something, or was a change made to the Spot Removal tool sometime in the mid-late 2010s that broke backward compatibility? If so, I'm willing to get my hands dirty with any specailized software that might be available, or even modify the XMP metadata appropriately if that's possible. What I can't tolerate is manually de-spotting all these images if I want to open them in the new software - I may be forced to go back to CS5.1 if that is the only option.
