Exported GeoJSON contains mystery coordinates with no spatial reference

I've created an Experience Builder app with the Query and Table widgets so that the users can select polygon features and export them to a GeoJSON file. Several months ago when I first tested this feature, the exported GeoJSON file contained nice coordinate pairs like [-120.90737626436639,50.50502558241272] which are in the WGS84 (SRID:4326) spatial reference coordinate system which I believe should be the default for the GeoJSON format. It was my understanding that exported GeoJSON files would always have geometry specified in that coordinate system.

Today when I tried to demonstrate this export feature to users, I find that the exported GeoJSON file contains coordinate pairs like [-13480856.5701,7626432.870400004], and there is no coordinate system or spatial reference specified in the file. So other applications that normally take GeoJSON files as input cannot interpret the geometry.

I don't see any options for specifying a spatial reference in the various places where one would export features to GeoJSON from ArcGIS Online. I'm currently trying to export an entire small hosted feature layer (of which I am the owner) to GeoJSON, but it is taking forever, which may be a separate issue. How can I produce GeoJSON files with coordinates in the default WGS84 system?
