Getting Fonts from epub to azw3?

I export from InDesign to epub format with embedded fonts. When I bring the file into Calibre and use "tweak book" the fonts are included. If I convert this file in Calibre to AZW3 and view that file in tweak book, there is a font folder but it is empty.
Is there a way to convert this so that the embedded fonts remain in the AZW3 format?

Thanks

Jon

The fonts are obfuscated. They won't work in AZW3. You'll have to fix the ePub so the fonts are normal after the ePub is exported from InDesign.

@JSWolf: calibre conversion handles obfuscated fonts automatically.

With the KF8 file loaded on your K3, go to the AA menu and turn on the publisher font.

With KF8, the embedded font is not displayed by default. You have to actually have to select it (publisher font) to be displayed.
