based on the speed-calculator the effect seems to be much higher as it should be (~ +40%) - but maybe the speed-calculator is just wrong at this point.

The formula for the attack speed calculator was implemented by @MaxQuest who pulled it from the game code iirc. 
As I said: speed buffs that stack often do so multiplicatively and thus if you already have some speed bonuses that stacks with Hastening Exhortation then it may seem it works better than advertised in the tooltip.

Doesn't it stack?

Since it's an active effect it doesn't stack with other active effects. There are exceptions like Sure-Handed Ila. This is implemented in a way that it's in another "group" and thus stacks. Same as stuff that buffs deflection will stack with a buff that affects all defenses: will stack; or an active, universal buff to ACC (Disciplined Barrage) that will stack with a specific buff to "only" ranged and melee ACC  (Devotions for the Faithful). 

But Hastening Exhortation doesn't stack with Swift Aim, Alacrity, Frenzy, Swift Strikes, Spelltongue's speed buff and so on. If you don't have any of these then Hastening Exhortation mas be useful to you.

Definetly, but there at that few harder fights, that I'm not sure if I will ever use up all 3 charges before resting.

And as my Paladin doesn't do anything usefull in the first few seconds of a fight anyway - why shouldn't he help my melee-wizard to get even more deadly as he already is?

 Yes, then it would make sense to use it. I didn't advise against it, I just said it's not popular because of 3/rest - answering your question why it is in so few builds.

But all depends if it stacks with Deleterious Alacrity or not.

Yeah - it doesn't. :)

But can still be used for other party members if you don't have other active speed buffs for them.

just curios, as "form of delegman" and "armor of faith" do stack and as far as I understand - they shouldn't (same group).

This falls into the same category as this:

Because Armor of Faith buffs your DR universally but Form of the Delemgan "only" buffs pierce-, corrode-, shock-, crush- and slash-DR.

You can apply this stacking "rule of thumb" to everything in Pillars (and Deadfire): if one effect (buff or debuff doesn't matter) affects a stat universally and another one affects it only partially then they will stack. 

Hastening Exhortation and Alacrity affect both the exact same thing and are both active effects: no stacking.

What stacks with Hastening Exhortation: Durgan Steel effects (on weapon and on shield), Armored Grace, Speed (enchantment on weapons), Bloodlust (passive), Gauntlets of Swift Action (considered passive for no reason iirc), Anitlei (passive), Sure-Handed Ila (only ranged), dual wielding, Two-Weapon-Style (iirc additively only - but still stacks).
Everything else will suppress Hastening Exhortation if >20% or will get suppressed if < 20%.
