Seems like it's not available via title formatting but only via a special fb2k SDK method only present in certain panels.

Ones that I know of:
Item properties (columns UI only)
Selection properties (default UI only)
Properties + Other Info bundled with JScript Panel 3 (CUI + DUI)
Support - (fb2k) / Channel layout mapping info not displaying?
Last post by Rhyzak -
I'm trying to get the channel information to display in FB2k for audio files that have channel mappings outside of Stereo and Mono. I have a 5.1 .AC3 file that shows "Channels : 6: FL FR FC LFE SL SR" under the General group, in the Details tab for the files Properties box inside of FB2k.

I tried looking for a metadata field inside of this page here, but none of the fields that had something to do with audio channels were able to display the individual channel mappings themselves. There is one field there called "$info(channel_mode)" which seems to be the only one that slightly mentions the LFE channel along with a description of the others. But that doesn't seem to work at all.

Does anyone got any ideas on how to display this information inside of a Column for playlists, or an info box like Item Details?

but I did find some code to paste into the display preferences so now the status bar does indeed indicate

Good point. Here is some code you can try:
%playback_time%[ / %length%]      %samplerate% Hz | %channels% | %codec% '('$if(%__hdcd%,HDCD', '$replace(%__hdcd_gain%,0.0 dB, 0.0 dB) gain; $replace(%__hdcd_peak_extend%,yes,PE=Y,no,pe=no); $replace(%__hdcd_transient_filter%,yes,TF=Y,no,tf=no),no HDCD)')' @ %bitrate% kbps
