One reason: it depends upon which type of comment was placed into the PDF. If it's a generic editing mark (Underline text, Strikethrough text, Add note to Remove and Replace text, Insert text) ...Standard editing tools/marks in Acrobat. then they should import with few problems.   But the other commenting tags (Sticky notes, Highlighter, etc.) are dicey. Sometimes they come in, other times they don't.   Truthfully, I don't understand what causes the inconsistencies. Is it something in InDesign? ...

Truthfully, I don't understand what causes the inconsistencies. Is it something in InDesign? Something in the PDF? Something the author did in the PDF?
