The best practice in this case is to change the export tagging section in your character style to reflect the correct tag in question: "em" for italics and "strong" for bold. You should do the same for superscript (sup) and subscript (sub). This will make your code more semantic, which is considered by many a good thing.

If you leave it at "Automatic", Indesign will pick the Character Style name and insert it as a class name in a generic "span" tag.

Don't insert nothing in the "class" field if you just want to mark the text as italic or bold in the code.

Check these examples:

You'll probably have to deal with code very often.
