I tried reproducing the same at my end and it did not convert the hyphenated text as you mentioned. Please check for any specific style applied. Check with a new document as well. If it still happens, reset your InDesign preferences and then check again.
In order to reset the preferences to default, please see : Set preferences in Adobe InDesign
I have always had this same issue and it drives me nuts. The problem is that when you do the auto hyperlink text function, it ignores everything in a URL after the hyphen. I have tried resetting my InDesign preferences multiple times without success. I have to laboriously go through every document and fix all the bad links.
Also, it would be great to know if there is a way to run a hyperlink check through the document that actually goes to each hyperlink to check validity - is this possible? This would help with my laborious fixing process (currently, I click every single link in the PDF manually).

To check whether hyperlinks are valid, open the Hyperlinks Panel in InDesign. To the right of each hyperlink there is a little disc. If it's green, it means the hyperlink is valid. If it's red, it means it isn't: Learn how to create, manage, and edit hyperlinks in InDesign
