While I agree that the formatting choice looks a little weird. The primary benefit of a formatter is that the formatting is always the same not. It's less important that it matches everyone's preferences and more important that it always formats the code the same way.

If most people dislike it on my team, we simply won't use it :(

It must be nice to work on a team where everyone agrees on the formatting. I don't think I've ever worked with a team where that was true. The exception being languages where the formatting was enforced by the language tooling itself. Those occasions no one even discussed it so I wouldn't exactly know if they agreed with it or not.
