This is apparently the source code of the ffmpeg version they are
building (and you are using):


which is basically based on this ffmpeg commit:

They seem to provide some patches, but only one of them is not old,


While I see their make scripts, I don't see how they got their version
"8.2.1-21" into it. So we may not be seeing all, or I didn't look hard

I get the impression they didn't change anything else though, but
that's just an assumption. If so, they are using ffmpeg's AC-3
unmodified. Just for the record. This won't (yet) help to understand
whether Kodi does something special, or even how its kodi.bin is built.
