Slow to format cards

Both my old A6000 and my current A6400 always format SD cards at a fairly slow rate ... much slower than my Canon or Nikon cameras.

The speed is about what my other cameras will do when performing a low level format, but much slower than a standard format.

Do these cameras default to a low level format when formatting a card?  I have never found any setting for formatting, so I wonder if that's what's happening.
