In the contour extraction dialog, the chosen format is not taken into account.
It always create shapes!
The -f format option is not specified in the command.

Just to clarify: The file open dialogue allows different file formats (like DXF), but that just adds the suffix to the target filename. As a result, you get a folder with extension .dxf (or else), containing the shapefile files.
I would expect that the file open dialogue also adds the -f format part to the gdal_contour commandline. It has to be edited manually by clicking on the pencil.
BTW the Processing Toolbox module GDAL/OGR Contour has the same bug.
