I think you must be misunderstanding what these steps are. They must be used to
specify which existing partitions to use, where to mount them, mount options,
etc. Once these have been done with supported formatted empty partitions, the
installer will default to "do not format". Even if they managed to return
"format partition", you can change the selection to "do not format".
