Missing glyphs in a Right-to-Left Paragraph direction
InDesign Middle Eastern Version 126.96.36.199
Steps to reproduce the issues:
a. In Preferences>Composition>Highlight, turn on Highlight for missing glyphs.
b. Type in a text box open and closing parenthesis.
c. Toggle between Right-to-Left and Left-to-Right Paragraph direction.
Expected result: Missing glyphs should not be affected by paragraph direction.
Actual result: When the direction becomes Right-to-Left the parenthesis are highlights as missing glyphs.
If you type one Hebrew letter before and after the parenthesis, the parenthesis will be highlighted with missing glyphs also on Left to Right Paragraph direction.
I tried with various fonts, all behave the same. Today was the first time I noticed it. It happened with a document that I edit all the time (and also a new one I created to test it) when I selected a different paragraph style. I then got a message that there are missing glyphs. I turned on the highlight option and suddenly I notices that all my parenthesis are highlighted in yellow for missing glyphs. I believe it is a bug of the latest version.

FWIW: InDesign Preflight is showing no issue at all.
An exported PDF will contain the right glyphs.
