My EE.SE profile (where I have last edited it) looks like this:

A fix is rolling out in the next build (build rev 2015.11.11.3857 on MSE/MSO, 2015.11.11.2970 on sites). It fixes both issues (HTML being generated before markdown processing, as well as the markdown processing). Updating your profile after that should correctly update it everywhere.
