Ah, I thought the contrary..

Hmm.. this is strange. "emacs -q/Q" uses Monospace and in Emacs, 'Menu-Set 
Default Font...' seems to show that Monospace has italic (see the attachment 
taken with 'emacs -Q')! But really I tried with many fonts (Andale Mono, 
Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, Courier, DejaVu sans Mono book, FreeMono, Noto...) 
all listed with the the regular, italic, bold.. versions and with the same 
negative results.

This does not occur on Windows or macOS.

If you see the image in my previous post, win10pro-footex-test.png, it uses 
Courier, the same Courier New listed in Emacs Set Default Font menu item but 
there it is italic not underlined.

Anyway, may you suggest a font to be used with Emacs in GNU/Linux to test this?
