I have quite a specific question as to LGPL vs GPL license and AAC

make ffmpeg *without* --enable-gpl, the built lib can be used under LGPL.
2) ffmpeg uses libfaad2 for AAC decoding
3) libfaad2 is available only under GPL or a commercial license (but not
Still, my compiled ffmpeg binary is able to decode AAC (ffmpeg -formats
Now I wonder how can this be?
Any insights appreciated as to which of my assumption is/are wrong.
