The spawner script is one of the command-line tools offered by the controller_manager ROS package (doc), and it does _not_ start a controller_manager instance.

The controller_manageris typically instantiated inside your robot hardware abstraction (hardware_interface::RobotHW specialization). If using gazebo_ros_control, this is already done by the existing plugins (Tutorial), but if using on a custom abstraction, you have to do the setup yourself.
