1. go to settings
2. go to language & region
3. change the region

Expected: the format would change
Actual: format doesn't change

Note:
1. changing the language would change the format and the language of the sample
2. I would have thought that the language would change the language of the sample, but not the format...

This is a bug. Changing the language should change the OS language, but not the language of the sample format.

The sample format is connected with Region, not Language. (I know this isn't clear from the visual design, and this is something I'll file a bug about). Basically, the sample format is modified only when the user changes the region. The sample is modified to the language and format of the selected region. 

This may seem like a strange design choice, but I've looked at the problem from multiple angles, and decided this was the best choice to cover cases such as:

I live in Japan (calendar, currency, etc. show Japanese format) but want my phone to be in English (all other strings are in English)

Also, there are precedents with other mobile OSes.

> 2. I would have thought that the language would change the language of the

So to reiterate, changing the language doesn't change the language of the sample. Just the language of the OS
