Side-Loaded fonts and Advanced font weight adjustments

I haven't tested epub on my Kobo devices in a long time, (since I generally prefer the improvements with Kepub.). But I was doing some testing on my Libra 2, and was surprised to see that adjusting the front weight on my sideloaded fonts (Adobe Caslon Pro and Adobe Minion Pro) did not work in the epub reader. Is this a known quirk? Is it something wrong with the fonts I was using?

I can text Adobe Casalon Pro on my Libra 2 running 4.38. I have that font on my system.

On my Sage, I am able to change the font weight with Adobe Minion Pro. At least, it changes in the sample text when I change the weight.

Yes, the sample text, but the text in the books remains stubbornly unchanged.

Are They otf fonts? When You read a Epub the possibility of changing font weight doesn't work with otf fonts. It works only with ttf fonts.
