Indesign Index Marker Bugs

I create directories using indesign and this requires large & complex indexing. I have noticed recently that the 4th Level index entries are being preformatted with an end paragraph marker (^p) before the entered text. eg,

Level 1 "Haematology"

Level 2 "Clinical"

Level 3 "Western Australia"

Level 4 "^pMary Smith" -- actual entered text "Mary Smith"

This happens mostly but not always and requires stripping these markers from thousands of entries.

Can anyone advise if this is and Indesign bug or some obscure setup error on my part.

Just wanted to know a simple way that I could fill in docs that would have
the same basic info, except certain varying situations. The form is
basically a long form, but the information varies. I currently have the
Adobe for graduate students. Which Adobe Program would help me with this?

Thanks,
