What you see in the ID separations Preview is waht you'll get (except in the case of placed .eps and export or print to postscript).
the illustrator file was placed as .ai...
When I check the Lt Blue break down in Indesignk swatch palette, it was the correct ones. This means the Indesign file will seperate correctly - right?
And as a practical matter, 2% difference in density is probably within the margin of error or expected drift over a press run and is unliley to be dectable to most people.

If an Illustrator color was added to the ID Swatches panel, it had to be defined as a spot color when the file was placed or updated. If you want to see the actual document CMYK and spot color output values check the placed object's values via Separation Preview panel. The Swatches panel doesn't necessarily show you output values—the swatch might not be used in the document.
