Didn't check if you got it right, but the rules are the following: 

All global pointers (which are shared among several codec instances) MUST be
allocated with *_static(). If they aren't, valgrind will report them as "still
reachable", and they MIGHT cause leaks.

Pointers, which are inside some context structure MUST NOT be allocated 
with *_static(). Instead, they must be freed right before the parent struct 
is freed.
