Per this documentation on XML comments...
http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Berlin/en/XML_Documentation_Comments#Overview

We tried adding the sample comment to one of our methods in the implementation section like the example shows. This failed to show the comment on the hovering over the method. However, if we moved the comment to the interface section it worked fine.

Is there a way to use XML comments by tagging them in the implementation section? It really seems to clutter up the interface section so I think it would be more appropriate for it in implementation.

Not that I could find, but the bonus is that you can get the text from the interface by hovering over the implementation. Some 3rd Party tools also allow docking a Live Doc window to make that all simpler.
