When the option Check file formats and names in archive (Rules → Content Filtering) is enabled, Kaspersky Secure Mail Gateway checks not only those archive formats which are listed in Banned formats of attachments, but all other archive formats as well. These are DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, PDF, and MSI files, which are not archives but can contain other files within. E.g. if you have JPG attachments banned and the option Check file formats and names in archive, then the PDF file which contains images will be blocked as well during scan.

For details on the new Office file formats, see the Microsoft Office knowledge base.
