Added as part of 018d353c1c8c87767d2335cd884017c2ce12e045 and a fix regarding duplicate words for that part was added at bac2d5ba30339298db7d4caa9c8cd31d807cf081. 

Relevant format string at https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/2896/files#diff-25e2d173c84057d069b7890450714eddR214.

Relevant test case with 6-digit string for microsecond : https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/2896/files#diff-acc40bec51c7de832de3361db3edae52R309.

Table at https://docs.python.org/3.7/library/datetime.html#strftime-and-strptime-behavior could also be updated with microseconds being optional in the second column

%z | UTC offset in the form ±HHMM[SS] (empty string if the object is naive). | (empty), +0000, -0400, +1030

You can raise a GitHub PR for the same.
