Are you using the “More tag” on any of those posts?: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/using-the-more-tag/
If so, it will display your excerpt using the more tag instead of the 40 word setting.
As for the masonry issue, can you try adding the shortcode outside of Beaver Builder in a regular page to see if the issue persists?
Happy New Year!
