Mentions not working in custom field

I have a multi line text field set up with a wiki renderer. Wiki markup is working correctly for this field, but user mentions with @ symbol and autocompletion are not working. I can utilize mentions in the description field on the same screen successfully. Is there a configuration setting that I may be missing to get mentions to work? This is definitely functionality that I would like to have in this field.

Mentions only work in the description and comments field.

See details ;)


Thanks for the clarification.
