I have checked in the keywords list in Google Webmaster tools and NONE of the keywords present in either Boxes, Banners or features appears at all.
I'm also using Yoast SEO, with the standards settings.
Am I doing something terribly wrong?

Boxes, Banners and Features are all unique post types which won't show up in search results. This is, surprisingly, a very good thing. For one thing, a slider changes continuously in most cases, so its content would not be included in a search of the site, not even internally.
None of these sections are really intended to be content areas and search engine bots look for content, not text only. Their purpose is to convey a message; a thought or; to provide links to get your visitors elsewhere in your site.
So you're not doing anything wrong, but neither is any SEO plugin by ignoring these sections. My suggestion is... don't use them to provide the content on key pages. Use them to supplement or highlight content or resources.

But I can't understand this post than
Are you talking about google now? Of course its indexed, the search
engines scan the finished rendered page for text, the boxes, features
whatever are all text in that page.
not the same thing??

The webmaster tools has an option to view the page as google sees it. Try that.

Rob is saying that boxes and features would not show up in Google:
..."Boxes, Banners and Features are all unique post types which won't show up in search results"...
while Simon was saying that they would:
..." the search engines scan the finished rendered page for text, the boxes, features
whatever are all text in that page."...
In "fetch as google" I see both titles and links (at least for boxes)
but neither the keywords in the titles, nor the links shows up.

Well look, you can see in the data the links are internal and are in the HTML so google will see them.
How it does it we dont know and maybe you should be asking the google support?
So just to clear this up for the nth time:
Sections etc in the post edit page are NOT included in the yoast data, because they are only rendered on the front end.
Yoast etc only look in the post_content and post_exerpt for data, unless you fill in the meta info on the post edit screen.
Yoast will NOT look at sections data on the front end, only post content.
So if there is data in the raw html it will see it.
Thats all there is to it really.
