In Genesis Page specific layouts override the default layout from theme settings. But the same does not apply for the Page set as Posts page (in Settings > Reading). Regardless of what layout you select when editing this Page, the default layout will continue to be used unless the following code is added in the child theme’s functions.php:

/**
 * Make Posts page obey its Page layout setting
 */
add_filter( 'genesis_pre_get_option_site_layout', 'sk_do_posts_page_layout' );
function sk_do_posts_page_layout( $opt ) {

	if ( ! is_home() ) {
		return;
	}

	$opt = get_post_meta( get_option( 'page_for_posts' ), '_genesis_layout', true );

	return $opt;

}
