The order of Arabic digits is reversed when changing their character direction
- Adobe InDesign CC 2017.1
- Create a textbox, type Arabic characters including some digits. Change character direction from 'Default' to 'Right to Left'.
- Arabic letters are RTL, but Arabic digits are written LTR; So when you change character direction to RTL, they should be in their right direction.
- Letters are RTL, but digits are reversed. The problem is that Arabic script is written RTL, but its digits' direction is LTR. Just like when you move caret and logically it moves in correct direction.

Can you tell us why would you need to change Character directions to RTL? Leaving it to "Default" yield better result when you type Arabic/Farsi/Dari/Urdu/Kurdish. As a matter of fact leaving Character Directions to "Default" will be appropriate even if you're mixing Latin language with above RTL languages.
If you really need to change Character Directions to "Right-To-Left" you can apply it to a selection not to the whole sentence or paragraph.
