You'll need to use Find to locate and select instances of the
character tag you want to remove, then manually apply Default
Paragraph Font from the Character Format Catalog, then manually apply
the character format you want.

While a FM character format can apply specific font properties to
selected text, it can't "unapply" character properties - whether
applied by a named character format, or applied as an override. "As
Is" means "do not change;" it would be great if FM offered a "Restore
Default Paragraph Font" feature.
