NEST date deserialization challenges

I have an Index in Elasticsearch 7.2.0 with mappings that look like the following:

{
"settings": {
"analysis": {
"normalizer": {
"lowercase_normalizer": {
"type": "custom",
"char_filter": ,
"filter": ["lowercase"]
}
}
}
},
"mappings": {
"properties": {
"CustomerId": { "type": "keyword", "normalizer": "lowercase_normalizer" },
"Person": {
"properties": {
"FirstName": { "type": "keyword", "normalizer": "lowercase_normalizer" },
"MiddleName": { "type": "keyword", "normalizer": "lowercase_normalizer", "index": false },
"LastName": { "type": "keyword", "normalizer": "lowercase_normalizer" },
"DateOfBirth": { "type": "date", "format": "MM/dd/yyyy" }
}
},
"CurrentBalance": { "type": "scaled_float", "scaling_factor": 100, "index": false },
"DueDate": { "type": "date", "format": "MM/dd/yyyy", "index": false }
}
}
}

Using the python APIs, I am able to search the index using Person.DateOfBirth without any issues. Unfortunately, when I try to query the same index from C# using the Nest 7.2.0 client, I am running into issues that appear to be related to (de)serializing the dates from/to C# DateTime objects. The docs are confusing, at best, given the changes between 6.x and 7.0 with regards to NEST serialization.

snip...

I tried adding/removing the [Date(Format = "MM/dd/yyyy"] attribute to my DateTime fields but the result is the same both ways. I can see in Fiddler that the underlying query to Elastic is working and returning the expected data but I cannot figure out how to get past this DateTime serialization issue.

What do I need to do in order to make NEST handle this properly?

Thanks,
