ANNOUNCEMENT: community.oracle.com is currently Read only due to planned upgrade until 28-Sep-2020 9:30 AM Pacific Time. Any changes made during Read only mode will be lost and will need to be re-entered when the application is back read/write.
The following is what I get when running the following in sqlplus:
SQL> set numformat 9G999G999G999G999
SQL> select 4839284398423 from dual;
Apparently on SQL Developer 220.127.116.11.1159 the numformat parameter is not supported at all and therefore results are always shown without the group-separators. This is probably more of a bug than a feature request.
