Export Annotation to CAD - Label Placement

Every so often I get asked by our CAD guy to export parcel owner labels in certain areas of the city in which we will be doing work, as he will be drawing up plans for that project.  I use a VBScript label expression on the parcel layer to get the relevant information he needs and in the format that he likes, and when I convert the labels to annotation it appears as he & I want it to look - the text block to be centered and then the center of the text block inserted at the center of each parcel:

But when I use the Export to CAD GP tool it seems to ignore all the work I've done, more so in ArcGIS Pro, in getting the labels to appear as we want them:

I've played around with as many settings as I can in converting the labels to annotation and exporting to CAD and don't seem to be getting anywhere.  My CAD guy says he can work with it in Civil 3D to get it the way he wants, but it seems like something I should be able to do on my end.


Any ideas on how to get these labels to show up in CAD like they do in both ArcMap & ArcGIS Pro?
