For everyone who is struggling with this (I have been having non-stop issues) I have found a sort of work around for the two main issues:
1. Exporting for Screens DOES NOT seem to include the bleed, even if it is checked. My printers can never find it, when I open the file in Illustrator the bleed is there, but it doesn't show up when viewed as a PDF in a pdf viewer
2. Export for Screens ghosts in ALL of the artboards - again you won't see them in PDF viewer but they bog down the file.
Go to Edit > Adobe PDF Presets
Create a Preset that has "Use Document Bleed Settings" checked (if you want this) and has "Preserve Adobe Editing Capabilities" unchecked
Save that Preset
When you Export for Screens and select PDF as your file type click the settings gear and select this new PDF profile. Your exported PDFs will now export with the bleed and will not include the ghosted artboards if you re-open them in Illustrator. Unfortunately, if you re-open in Illustrator you will not longer actually have your bleeds - the artboard will have been resized to just include them as part of the artwork. This is definitely not ideal, but it at least helps when going to print because you keep the file trimmed down to just the art you want to send, and ensure bleeds are visible for your printer.
