The issue is that the notmuch-wash-cited-text is applied in
notmuch-was-excerpt-citations. A simple solution would be to make
another wash function that did less (only did the overlay application)
and use that.

Thank you for your reply.
Here is how to get what I wanted when I ran into this bug:
;; don't collapse cited text
;; We ought to be able to just remove
;; `notmuch-wash-excerpt-citations' from
;; `notmuch-show-insert-text/plain-hook', but that function is also
;; responsible for colouring cited text (this is an upstream bug:
;; that function does the colouring for performance reasons but the
;; right answer is to use fontlocking, not overlays, for the colouring)
