This is most certainly not a bug (and hence doesn't belong in "Bug Reports").

The featured content is designed to pull out the excerpt from your post. This is how WP tackles excerpts:
1. It checks if you have a "manual excerpt" defined for your post.
2. If yes, it displays the manual excerpt with all formatting that you provide.
3. If no, it tries to auto-generate an excerpt. For this the default behavior is to pull out the first 55 words from your post (since release 3.2.3 you can configure this number). Any fancy formatting that you have put in are treated as cruft and discarded. Plugins like Sociable add their information to the content of the post, hence WP's extraction algorithm pulls in that information too for the excerpt display.

The bottomline is that if you want your excerpt to look good, you should use a manual excerpt.

You could have left the original post in, just so that it helps others.
