Are the images showing as "embedded" in the Links panel?

My guess is that these "images" were copied and pasted from Photoshop into InDesign. When this happens, an image "appears" on the InDesign page, but in fact isn't really there. This is why the image isn't listed in Links, and why you get a blank space in the exported PDF.
I alluded to that in my first sentence. NO!
If you do it in CC2018, the image will show up in the PDF. You're not quite right.
But, if it's from an older version of InDesign, the images won't show up in the PDF. That is my problem.
