#5309 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

All photo media reduced to 300px wide

I've tested with several WordPress themes plus my own to make certain this is a core problem.
My site ( uses fluid design to fit a multi-column design to the browser width. I've ported this to my WordPress theme.
When I add media (almost always a screenshot), I set the picture width to 100% so the picture fills the width of my fluid layout columns. WordPress over-rides this with:
sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px"
The result is a 300 pixel wide downsampled image that either doesn't fill the column width in my theme or fills the width with a blurry image in Twenty Sixteen, Twenty Seventeen, Twenty Nineteen and Twenty Twenty.
Here is a sample page that shows a screen shot mangled by WordPress:
Neither result is acceptable. I am not going to spec a picture width in pixels, because that is bad practice in a fluid design. When I spec 100% width, I expect the picture to be 100% width at full resolution. Please fix this glaring defect and stop making your own private version of HTML on my site.
