According to https://bugs.python.org/issue30661#msg339300 , "format" argument of Tarfile.open() only concerns the writing of files. It's worth mentioning it in the doc, if it's True (confirmation from core maintainers is welcome).

Looking at tarfile.py, "format" seems only used in addfile() indeed.
