#39519: Excerpt in 2017 not showing (Theme bundled with Wordpress Core)

 The bundled theme 2017 doesn't show the excerpts despite setting the
 reading settings to show a summary on the feed. I've checked the theme
 files and there is a content-excerpt as well as an excerpt function.
 Somehow it's not called, though. I've got two sites where you can see it
 not showing (I've got the settings set to summary on both sites):
 Never Ending Realms Dev Blog: http://neverendingrealms.com/blog/
 Ilse Mul: http://ilsemul.com/blog/

 Several other wordpress users have mentioned this problem in the support
 threads, unfortunately without a good answer. The only solution that came
 was to create a child theme. I can't imagine we'd have to resort to this
 if the excerpt is already in the default theme files, hence this ticket.
