I've been running into an odd problem recently. If i type a line of type and them enlarge it by dragging it bounding box the the size of the font is displayed incorreclty in the tool bar. It usually displays a very small font size and then another font size in parenthesis. The is presists even when I change the type manually in the tool bar. The only solution is to completely delete the text box and start fresh. Why is this? Here is an example of what I am talking about.
I am using InDesign CC 2018 on a mac running high sierra.
You can prevent this happening again by changing a preference. Change this setting in General Preferences from Adjust Scaling Percentage to Apply to Content.
This did not work for me.

then make a sample InDesign document available with one single text frame that is showing the issue.
Could be also substituted contents. Your issue is solvable!

I don't see any issue on your screenshots. Can you explain?
select the frame of your scaled text and check if it is scaled with the Transform panel or the Control panel.
My guess is that the values for the percentages are not 100.
Note: preferences are exactly that: preferences.
They will dictate the behavior of things you will do. Not things you have done.
The current state of a preference like "When Scaling" will not reflect what was used on some objects at some time before.

Jmlevy, if you see on the screenshots the text on both is different sizes but they're described as the same in the character panels.
Uwe, I've check on both and the text frame is at 100 on both Transform and Control.
I don't understand your screenshots. Can you share the file?
please share a document with that text frame.
And also the other frame that you added to control the text size.

the case is easy:
You have applied superscript as formatting.

Thanks Uwe, you saved me! Have a great day.
