I exported a folder "as a Catalog" and lost the double arrow icons that identified a collection linked to a matching collection in Lr on my computer. '

It's been so long since it added those links that I forgot how I did it. Could someone refresh my memory?

It sounds as though you are talking about the sync icon that shows when a collection is synced with the cloud. In which case, those icons cannot appear in an exported catalog as only one catalog at a time can be the "synced catalog", i.e. the exported catalog is not synced with the cloud unless you specifically choose to make it the new synced catalog (but in doing that the current master catalog would lose its sync connection).
