We use our own fonts because we want the parentheses to display 
consistently whether they're being displayed at normal height, as in your 
example, or whether they're being stretched vertically (and similarly for 
brackets and curly braces).

But the behavior is easy to turn off.  Choose Format->Option Inspector..., 
set the scope to global, and look for the "OperatorSubstitution" option.  
Set it to False.  Then re-evaluate the graphics-producing commands, and 
re-run the Export[] command again.

Sincerely,
