SW 2016 export than import back in...invalid solid!

Now this I just don't understand. It could be that I am doing something wrong here - at least I hope I am. I have a normal SW2016 sheet metal part. I export the part as a Parasolid. I then import the Parasolid back into SW and have the system run Import Diagnostic. The diagnostics reports many face errors. What? I just created the blasted part how can it have face errors? It won't heal the faces! C'mon this is ridiculous. Next it tells me to run feature recognition and (as expected) it says its an invalid solid.

What the heck is going on here?
