Yes, but those were designed for a specific use case where the templates are written by language translators rather than software developers.

The current suggestion on the issue tracker is to add __format__ to bytes/bytearray/memoryview with a suitable symbolic mini-language to control the formatting details.

Thrashing out a mini-language design will likely require a PEP, though.
