Where is the format for a phone number controlled?

I double clicked on WA Server Validations and found the Phone Number Variable listed. When I double click on Phone Number, I see a pop-up that shows Allow Internationsl, Force Area Code, Allow blank entry.

Is this not the right place to control the format of the regular expression? I can't see anywhere that I could put in this custom format I'm after.

I can edit the spry effect and put it in there (by clicking Format -> custom which provides a field to enter the regular expression), but then the custom stuff will be overwritten when making changes via FB.

What about the FB format section for phone number where Custom is a value? I can click on Custom but there isn't anywhere to enter the custom regular expression.

Also, where is it that the parentheses are being added to the area code if I simply choose US/Canada for the format rather than Custom?
