I just tried the same tests on the same PDF file using latest version of
Foxit on windows:

The results were

2) exporting as text file - generated text file used the visible text in
PDF, it did not use the contents of the ActualText tags

3) cutting and pasting - pasted text was based on the visible text in PDF,
it did not use the contents of the ActualText tags

will continue testing other tools.
