I don't usually get that, except in the middle of *some* quoted text.  I
say "some," because not all quoted text remains "as-is" ("as-is" being
good quoting etiquette - leave things alone, as default; but allow you
to fix them, by choice).

It normally does have "normal" as the text formatting style.  Are you
referring to fresh messages or replies?  With replies  Try hitting enter
and breaking away from prior text, and see if it changes.

For what it's worth, Evolution's quoting is abysmal.  I nearly always
have to tidy it up, especially when there's more than one generation of
quoted text.  I find most mail and news clients to be that way,


Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
