There is a mixme in that node:

          Output the corresponding ARG as a fixed format floating point
          number, such as `1.34'.

          Output the corresponding ARG in exponential notation, such as

          %% FIXME::martin: There must be a difference.  Does anybody
          know?  Like `~f'.

In Emacs "format" does the following:

%f means print a number in decimal-point notation.
%g means print a number in exponential notation
  or decimal-point notation, whichever uses fewer characters.

Perhaps Guile does or should do the same.
