[docs] [issue33828] Add versionchanged notes for string.Formatter

New submission from Xiang Zhang <angwerzx at 126.com>:

I propose to add versionchanged note about auto-numbering feature of string.Formatter, introduced in #13598. It's quite confusing which version could I use the feature reading the doc. Also it's better to note in 2.7 the feature is not available.

Currently the doc gives me the feeling string.Formatter and str.format share the same feature and the auto-numbering feature is available in 2.7 and >3.1.
