After adding emojis in InDesign (2021), using the Apple Color Emoji font and exporting to PDF, I find a black square surrounds them:

Tried changing fonts too.

All thoughts welcome.

Emojis are basically designed for screen use. They are not fully supported in the PDF standard. It may work or partially work in some applications and not in others. 

 

I found what you got in InDesign 2021 but it worked OK in Illustrator 2021:

The only “color” OpenType fonts that are officially supported by Adobe are OpenType SVG fonts. Included with recent releases of  InDesign and Illustrator is the Emoji One Color OpenType SVG font. Try that. The export to PDF and can be printed without any issues.

 

Unfortunately, there are at least three different formats of “color” OpenType fonts out there and not one of them is globally supported.
