 it is unclear what audio-(frames/samples) mean
 and from recent discussion it appears to mean something related to
 a (ffmpeg-specific) chunk/unit/packet of audio samples that are
 parsed/buffered when processing/encoding

 NOT the typical #audio-samples, as in audio-sample-rate x audio-duration

 therefore it makes filters such as
 aevalsrc's nb_samples confusing (which is which?)
 also for: anullsrc flite anoisesrc sine volume ladspa

 it seems to use meanings that aren't used (commonly) outside of ffmpeg
