I started uploading .ADFs from NA long ago. (To LOTW, eQSL, and qrz)
I have also never had a problem.
I got away from uploading cabrillos to the online QSL service years ago.
Sometimes the E-Log ID got rejected when uploading a log from a home-brewed
.crt file. I'm sure that happened because I didn't know the correct E-Log ID
This doesn't help you Jim but it's my two cents.

I have 300,000+ QSOs in LoTW (including 5BWAS, WAS "Triple Play", 257
countries pls 5BDXCC) and every single QSO came from NA. I did it using
Cabrillo files, and never had a problem.
However, you probably can use your existing NA ADIF files simply by
renaming these from *.adf to *.adi. NA was one of the first contest loggers to
add ADIF support, and at that time, the ADIF spec did not specify a standard
file extension for an ADIF file. I chose ".adf", and much later LoTW
chose ".adi". The ADIF file spec has so much variability built into it, that I
decided to avoid the issues with my own logs and went with Cabrillo from
the beginning. And as I said previously, never had a problem...

utility to convert the DAT files to ADIF. Prior to that, I was NA and CT
user for years. Yeah, I know. Please don't lecture me on converting from
DOS. I'm set up and it works for me. Guilty as charged.

format, but the LOTW does not seem to recognize it. Can someone help me
convert my NA ADF files to ADIF to I can load them into the LOTW. Thanks in
advance. Please reply directly.
