R. David Murray added the comment:

I agree that the implementation does not match the documentation in this case.  Especially the part about "the format string used to create this Struct object".  I don't see what having a flag would buy you: it doesn't help you in writing 2/3 shared code.  I think the best we can do here is a doc change.
