The ARIN db lost all portable/non-portable atributes in the conversion.
Unless folks have gone back and requested they get re-tagged,
portability is unclear from the ARIN db.

If it is a singleton hole in a /18, your most net-friendly action would
be to voluntarily renumber.  The provider's most net-friendly action
would be to indicate it was non-portable.

Yes, that's the purpose of the HST record.  Update the HST and you're
all set.
