Subtypes & domains in editable feature service

Context: I am building an map with two layers, both of which are editable feature services pointing to the same SDE point feature class (point features representing street signs). The feature class has a subtype field (the kind of sign) and a number of attribute domains for each subtype. The first feature service layer that symbolizes the points based on the subtype field works as expected.

Problem: The second feature service symbolizes the points based on a different attribute (condition), and none of the domain descriptions show up in pop-up boxes. Only the integer values and not the domain descriptions of coded value domains are displayed.

My question: Why is this the case? And how can I have the domain descriptions (instead of the integer values) displayed in pop-up boxes for an editable feature service that symbolizes my data NOT on the subtype field but on a different field instead?

This is my first post here, so please let me know if something is unclear. Thanks for your time! -Tobias
