Some time back, when I complained to Adobe about this behavior, they told me
it was a feature! The alleged "feature" is that FrameMaker applies the
Level1IX paragraph format to all lower-level index paragraphs. That behavior
is in stark disagreement with what the user manual states to be the behavior
on page 25-27 in the third bullet under "To Retain Format Changes When

Here's the workaround if you use method 2 above:

1. After generating the index, select the entire text flow, and apply the
Default Para Font to it from the character catalog.

2. Choose Import > Formats, select Current Document, check Paragraph
Formats, turn on Remove Format Overrides, and click the Import button.

3. If step 2 doesn't fix it, repeat step 1 after performing step 2.
