For int, the spec is:

So, for "06d", "0" is matched as the literal 0, "6" is matched as width, and "d" is matched as type.

For "\x00<6d", "\x00" is matched as fill, "<" as align, "6" as width, and "d" as type.

For "\x006d", there's no align. So "\x00" cannot match as fill. "\x00" doesn't match anything else, so it's an invalid format specifier, thus the exception.
