Multi part to Single Part ArcGIS Pro output differs from ArcDesktop output

We have a polygon dataset with multiple classes that often have a class 1 polygon within a hole of a class 2 polygon.  These polygons do not overlap but are multipart and require to be exploded to single part.  When we run the multipart to single part tool the hole in the class 2 polygon disappears and results in class 1 and class 2 overlapping.  This did not occur when we ran our workflow in ArcDesktop.  Has anyone encountered this?  Is there a bug fix that we are missing to resolve this issue?

could you post an image?  

Run a Check Geometry to see if any issues are reported.

Also... what versions of the software?  Issues have been reported with the multipart tool with previous versions.

... sort of retired...

Unfortunately Check Geometry did not return any issues.

I am using ArcGIS Pro 2.8.3

See attached for screenshot. As mentioned CLASS 2 polygons had holes where CLASS 1 polygons exist prior to the Multipart to Singlepart GP tool run.  Generally the overlapping / holes are quite small as soon in the screengrab.
