This is fascia board at the roof edge, installed in 2016 when new roof was done. It was primed and painted. The top split is about 18" long and I can probably pull away the wood just below, about as long as the split. There is similar damage at the other end corner, 20' from this corner. I'm not sure if it it's water damage. Sorry about the sideways pics.
What's the best way to repair this short of a new board which would be a major project, removing drip edge and 1"x4" just beneath it, and then fascia. Roof is spray foam and probably would have to be resprayed at the edge.

Primed with oil base primer on 6 sides.

Do you have easy access to the inside?
If I remember correctly the wood came primed and before it was cut and installed I painted all pieces on 6 sides with a top quality Sherwin Williams exterior paint and the painter sprayed at least one more coat with the same paint. I don't think it was oil base. I can't do anything about the mitered corners and seams but I do have access to the back sides of the fascia and of course the front and bottoms which can be repainted with oil base. What do I do about the existing damage? Do I replace the damaged sections with new wood which i don't think can be done without damage to the spray foam roof. Is there a product that can repair the areas?

No, it sounds like the same wood we get pre primed, Are you in to replacing a couple feet on the end?
