Detail Callouts Putting Text on Another Layer

Whenever I make a new style in a 2012 AutoCAD file for a Detail Callout, I can create the callout bubble but the text entered for sheet numbers goes to another layer.  I've searched the web for a solution to this, but I cannot find one.  Everything is set to "By Layer" in the callout, so I'm not sure why the text is going to another layer.  The linework aside from the text all appears on my current layer. Any help would be much appreciated.

I exported the Callout using wblock and uploaded it if it helps.

Gets split between 2 layers.  If you turn off "Dimensions" layer, the text disappears.

I'm guessing it has something to do with this being a block...
