Specifically, a CVS formated file can be accessed by Base. Among the
format choices is thousands separator. Will Base access a CVS file that
uses a thousands separator and show the numbers with it? (1,000,000 or
1.000.000?) Or, will the field containing these numbers have to be
formated to exhibit it?


I would not call this "format choices". It is about import options which control how a snippet of text is going to be interpreted. First and foremost Base should be able to read the correct numbers. Then you can display these correct numbers in any way of formatting you like in table cells, Writer fields and form controls.
If 1.000.000 is imported as text, number formatting has no effect.

Same when you import csv into Calc where you choose the locale context of the numbers your are going to import. Each locale has one particular pair of decimal separators and thousands separators. Once you imported the correct numeric cell values the formatting is secondary.
