Eyedropper again started working correctly after deleting Master Page. A transparent box was covering the text (see Comments).
Adobe InDesign team
When You asked me to share a file to study it, I began to prepare the file (delete unnecessary pages and all unnecessary) and in the process of preparation I discovered this.
As soon as I deleted the master page the problem was gone.
Eyedropper again working correctly.
I returned to the moment before deletion and began to step by step delete elements from the template page.
I found out that after removing the transparent box from the template, the eyedropper took the right samples again.
Thus, the “wrong” work of the eyedropper turned out to be correct, but it simply took a sample from the transparent Box, which was on the OVER text layer.
Maybe my observation will help someone

Empirically I determined that the problem with the slowdown of InDesign is especially strong when there are text boxes in the publication with automatic adjustment in height or width, or height + width.
so even with transparencies

I have a similar problem with a eyedropper.
the text is patterned normally,
but when I take a color sample with a eyedropper and then transfer it to a new object - the new object is deleted, disappears from his place
I tried to go into the properties of the eyedropper (double click on the eyedropper)
after that I turned off the lower parameter
after that the problem was solved
try it, maybe you can do it this way.
sorry for bad english - google )))))
