.dwg Importing with annotation scale issues

Hi rhino users,
I’ve been having issues when opening .dwg files in Rhino 6. Upon import all text and annotation scales seem to import and display fine in Model space but all text is blown out of scale in layout space. I’ve attached some photos for reference. I am needing to revise and send these back in .dwg format. So I am worried that if I manually edit the annotation styles to display correctly in rhino, when I send them back they will read incorrectly on their software. Any advice would be appreciated.

Open new model file, import manufacturers .DWG. Dimension lines are 30-40 metres.
