Chrome is making them invisible. They're still there, though. You can tell by opening edit title, selecting the field, hitting Home (go to beginning of field), then hitting right arrow. You'll see it doesn't move immediately, because it's skipping over them. Only after three rights does it go past the S.

Similarly:

$( '#flow-topic-spy4q9e5pgom4314 input[name="topic_content"]' ).val().length

in the console will show 35, which includes the Obj characters.
