InDesign exporting paragraph tags instead of Header tags for accessible PDFs

Is anyone experiencing this???
I'm using Adobe InDesign and exporting to accessible PDFs. The tagging isn't exporting correctly. When I export to the PDFs, copy is being tagged with the paragraph style names, instead of the header tag I assigned. Please see example.

The copy is supposed to be assigned <H2> but instead it's <Head_U-Z>, which is the paragraph style name. When I use a Screen Reader NVDA, to navigate, it's not recognizing it as a Header.

In InDesign I have the Head_U-Z mapped correctly to export to H2. But's it not doing it.

Thank you, James. I tried what was recommended on that thread. It still doesn't fix it. It feels like the Tag Exporting from InDesign is just broken.

For those who are interested on how I ended up fixing this. It had to do with long paragraph styles names as mentioned on this thread. https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign-discussions/problem-with-role-mapping-paragraph-styles-to-ta...
I ended up shortening up my paragaph style names, and exports started working again. Cheers, everybody.
