We understand your concern about the fact that the community may not have
the same level of control over third-party libraries outside of the internal
FFmpeg components. However, our implementation of the EVC codec is available
on GitHub (https://github.com/mpeg5/xeve  https://github.com/mpeg5/xevd )
under the BSD license, which means that anyone can review and contribute to
the code.

Are there no other third-party libraries in the FFMpeg?
