In reviewing the PDF itself, it seems to be perfectly valid including properly encoding some characters to the NNBSP value using the standard methods.   The one thing that is strange (but I don’t know if it’s related as yet) is that the language of the document is marked as Japanese (ja-JP).

A quick review of the Acrobat code did not show any special casing of this value, but it may be happening elsewhere - so this will take a bit more time than I originally allocated.  So please be patient.

One question for you, have you seen other PDF viewers that do properly return the NNBSP?  If so, which ones on which OS platform?
