If books are in a true INDB file, endnotes or footnotes only work in the first chapter; endnote or footnote links in subsequent chapters need to be created manually. This is tedious, error-prone, and yet bi-directional linking is a requirement for virtually all EPUB companies at this point. Academic books are far too long and complicated to be created in a single file.
According to the ISO-32000, the Hyperlinks are NOT supposed to be populated into the Alt-Text field. They should be entered into the Contents Key (see attachment) instead.
InDesign currently does place them in the correct place [see screenshot attached].
While someone using Acrobat can also add them to the Alt-text field, this is technically less correct than entering into the Contents key but either will pass an Accessibility checker.
InDesign implemented this correctly based on the above information (provided by Accessibility experts, like Dax Castro, thanks Dax).
Closing this issue.
