Yes, I've noticed this weird behaivour as well with forms that were created in InDesign. It's seems to be a bug, most likely of ID rather than of Acrobat.
I would suggest reporting it, and then avoid creating fields in ID. Do it only in Acrobat: Feature Request/Bug Report Form
The issue with doing it in Acrobat is the need for custom checkbox graphics. It's less of a form and more of a diagram with six vertical slots where different circuit boards fit in. The first have ten options and the last has two (which are options in the first five as well). The checkboxes were used to show solder points.
