The operation depends on the setting of the global DecimalSeparator (which is set to the Windows default set in the configuration panel). So you might have to add the following to makle it work:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
  lSav: Char;
  lSav := DecimalSeparator;
  DecimalSeparator := '.';
    ShowMessage(FormatDateTime('dd/mm/yyyy hh:nn:ss:zzz', StrToFloat('123908.123129387')));
    DecimalSeparator := lSav;
