You are seeing the same thing, the list is identified, but the numbering is
not when ARIA is used.

It would be simplest to just try a simple ordered list without ARIA and see
if the content is recognized by Voiceover in the scrollable div when you
have it up and running. Since Voiceover will read the visible portion
anyway, it should be clear if the numbering is conveyed as well.
