you did not tell how you used format, but I assume
cout << format("BCB hex test: %08x") % 0x1234 << endl;
and then, yes, it's a correct simplification.

the description of the effect of 'internal' padding in the norm is
rather ambiguous sometimes (e.g. the effect on strings is subject to
interpretation), but pretty clear in this case.
§126.96.36.199/4 (semantics of operator>> on a string) : « [...], padding
as described in stage 3 of 188.8.131.52.2, where n is the larger of
os.width() and str.size(); [...] »
the table 61 in §184.108.40.206.2/19 says where to pad, depending on which of
the four cases we are in.
the 4th case is "adjustfield == internal and representation after stage
1 began with 0x or 0X"
(the stage 1 is the basic number-to-string conversion)
for this case the location where to pad is "after 'x' or 'X' "
so, without a doubt, your program here must produce "0x001234"
If it doesnt, you can file a bug report to your stream's author.
