Indesign only shows a lo-res proxy image of the original for placement purposes. 

Check the colour breakdown in the Separations Panel.

Window>Output>Separations

Check the colour breakdown.

 

Also check the colour breakdown when you export to PDF to ensure that no colour conversions are happening.
