property UpdateFormatSettings: Boolean;  

Use UpdateFormatSettings to control automatic updating of format settings. The default of True is set in the constructor. UpdateFormatSettings is checked when the application receives a WM_WININICHANGE message.  
Using the default format settings is recommended. These settings are initialized to the Windows local settings. However, to prevent the settings from changing during the execution of the application when altering the format settings in a Delphi application, UpdateFormatSettings can be set to False.
