For example:

>>> '{:04}'.format('abc')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: '=' alignment not allowed in string format specifier

There is no any '=' in the format string.

>>> '{: }'.format('abc')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: Sign not allowed in string format specifier

There is no any sign ('+' or '-') in the format string.

There also an inconsistency between the wording of "something not allowed in string format specifier" and:

>>> '{:x}'.format('abc')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: Unknown format code 'x' for object of type 'str'
>>> '{:xx}'.format('abc')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
