because internally the framed align can inject \hfil \hfill \hss or 
whatever was decided best ... it's already complex enough to write 
macros like \framed that adapt to all cases users throw at it so the 
options (like align) are there for a reason

if you don't want that you need to wrap your stuff in a box in which 
case you can do inside that box what you like


(you can use \showmakeup to see what is in a \framed box)
