Why does bulleted Word text create multiple character formats when imported?

I have a number of Word documents that use a bulleted style. This style is mapped to a FM paragraph format that uses bullets and the mapping works well when I import the text. However, at the same time, FM seems to create a character format for every paragraph that contains a bullet, so that I end up with hundreds of character formats, named Bullet1, Bullet2, etc. These don't seem to have been applied anywhere in the FM document. The styles don't exist in the Word doc and there is no manual formatting, only the paragraph style that includes a bullet. Why is this happening and how can I prevent it? This is driving me NUTS!

PS: FM 2015 at Version (Patch 5).
