I've created a calculation group in Tabular Editor, and for a specific calculation item I have set the Format String Expression to a percentage. - "0.0%". When I update my model, Power BI appears to have created a duplicate measure for all model measures.

Marco Russo describes this experience in the comment section of this community post:

This idea/suggestion is to block the display of any measures created to hold a measure's format string in PBI-Desktop.
