Do you have auto-formatting on save configured in Emacs -- perhaps even
via a starter kit like Doom Emacs, so that you're only half aware of it?
And are you by any chance on macOS, which ships with the tidy program
(HTML Tidy) by default? Or failing that, did you install it manually?

To cut a long-story short: HTML auto-formatting on save runs tidy, which
mangles the HTML in various ways, including this CDATA thing. This also
happens in buffers with generated Org export output.

I posted the long version to the mailing list in February:

I suggested a patch, but it probably got buried in the noise:

Instead, I see that another fix was merged yesterday (for different
reasons AFAICS, but it should help with this auto-formatting issue too):

This should be enough for HTML exports, but two more tweaks are needed
for ODT exports in ox-odt.el -- see my original patch. Or use
https://github.com/kjambunathan/org-mode-ox-odt, which has already
incorporated them.

+1 on that, although obviously, I'm aware it's quite a chore.
