Thank you for using Adobe XD. What format do you currently use when exporting files from Adobe Photoshop? Because you have already read this document Learn how to export production-ready assets from Adobe Experience Design as PNG, SVG, and PDF files. , you do know that you can export your artboards as PNG files.
Did you check with your developers about what they prefer? If the option you require isn't present in Adobe XD, I suggest logging a feature request using Adobe XD Feedback : Feature Requests & Bugs Before logging a request, search to see if any similar request has been made previously and vote for it. That way, the team does not end up with too many duplicates of the feature request.

I usually send the file as a layered PSD file. I can talk to them and ask them what they would like. I was just wondering if there was a "gold standard" out there as far as sharing design files with developers.

No gold standard... it depends on your developers workflow.
Following the steps on the URL you provided, I exported a sample 3 layer artboard to XHDPI (Android) and it just gave me a single PNG file.
How do I export different layers to different files?
it's pretty much awful that I can't export in any format in layers. Am I missing something? I need to know this ASAP.
I cannot transition to XD if my developers can't have layers. This is crap....please help. How can this be a good tool if it can't do that????
How do you do that? Will it export the file in layers?
What do you normally deliver to your developers? A layered psd or ai file?
Will sharing your XD file with your developers work?
