In exported PDF on macOS, comments are empty.
Only empty (yellow) placeholders are positioned there that open upon a click.
Using 6.0.3 daily build with no langpack.
This bug, AFAICR, was present also in older macOS versions.
The only way to get comments in PDF on macOS is a workaround to print to file, where pdf is selected as a printer. Then again, you get only actual text/blob comments, not foldable markup.
Thanks for the bugreport. (A) A sample ODT file. (b) The exported PDF and (c) a screenshot showing the problem would make thing a little easier to confirm =).
Here is the tested file:

No, it isn't.
But there is no need for that.
Create a new empty document, add a comment (some text), export as PDF (export of comments should be enabled in export settings).
Open generated PDF, you get the same result.

I can't repro it with LibO 6.1 build 08-03-2018 using Sierra 10.12.6.
It might be a PDF-reader issue.. The PDF is valid (in my case): https://www.pdf-online.com/osa/validate.aspx
I tried with 6.1.x master, it does the same, Preview on macOS shows empty comment.

Ouch, I can see the comment of the attached PDF file in firefox ( mac and linux ) but not in Chrome ( linux ) or Safari ( mac ). Setting to All...
I'm probably on the wrong track, but what did you test:
* Opening the attached PDF ( Generated PDF file with empty comment)
* Or exporting the PDF and opening it
There something fishy with PDF, but I can't create one myself..
