I don't find it odd at all that you use datetime-specific formats instead of integral formats to get numbers out of a datetime object; they are totally different things. And one of the reasons for __format__ support is to have DSLs such as the one for datetime objects.
As for pulling out individual objects, that just looks ugly, so I wouldn't advocate pulling out individual values and then formatting them individually in the string itself.
