I would think that the wiki is incorrect in stating that the default value for the align key is no, but I do not know what is the proper description of the default.

Without any align key, \framed is a \hbox; with align it is a \vbox. That might explain the difference that you see. Try adding \dontleavehmode in front of \framed
