Some personal experimentation does show some curiosities about this, but
not as severe as you are describing.
I just imported some pages containing a Paragraph Style. It was applied
properly. If you look at Properties > Text > Styles... it suggests that
no style is applied, but this is true in the original document as well.
When I click the drop down list, the style was indeed imported.
When I open Story Editor, I do see the style indicated for the paragraph.
Now, when I first look at the Edit Styles dialog in the document into
which I imported the page, the imported style is not listed, BUT when I
click on Edit, it's there. Subsequently, opening up the Edit Styles
dialog shows this imported style.
So, in summary (from this test):
Styles are indeed imported, though you may have to fish around to find
the evidence of it.
They seem to be applied in my test. When I look at the saved test
document, the imported style is indeed there.
