In copy and manuscripts for publication/printing, you insert two hyphens to indicate an en-dash, and three for an em-dash, and you don't use symbols that may not be present in the machines used by the fifteen people along the line who have to handle your text, so I'm afraid it's a sign that professional standards are being followed, not a mistake.
