Just have a problem where the android resources from a C# android library project are not included in the final android app, as if they have been forgotten by the compiler.
It happened because this android lib "A" is only referenced by another android lib B, which is referenced by the final app.
"A" is then automatically, by transitivity, compiled in the final app. But xamarin tooling won't detect that A was added by the compiler and won't compile its resources.
I fixed it by explicitely referencing lib "A" in the android app.
Side note: my lib A uses context.ObtainStyledAttributes(Resource.Style.MyControlDefaultStyle, Resource.Styleable.MyControl) internally to get its defaults. Witout referencing "A" in the final app, it was only getting en empty attribute set.

Do you perhaps have a reproduction project demonstrating this issue? This sounds like a potential limitation of the merging process of library resources.
We will first want to confirm the behavior to investigate a fix for this issue. Please attach a reproduction project starting with a File -> New Xamarin.Android Project
