I posted this over a month ago. Anyone able to provide an answer to this question?
That is the way Acrobat handles cropping.
However, you can choose Tools > Print Production > Preflight and search for the Fixup called Crop All Pages to Bounding Box.
The document probably has a trim box or art box. The rule is that
- Acrobat uses the crop box to show the page
- When placing a page the art box or trim box should be used
