Summary topic style doesn't retain hangindent for multi-paragraph descriptions

The topic style (provided by glossary-topic.sty which is bundled with glossaries-extra) doesn't support multi-paragraph descriptions for child entries.

This is also a known limitation of the tree styles, but since the topic style is intended for more lengthy glossary entries, it should support multiple paragraphs for the sub items.
