The value is calculated according to the logic in the RFC[1]. Specifically
using embedded timestamps in the RTCP packets and calculated delays. The
value is presented in seconds I believe in the output.

That has no impact within this, since it's calculated using the RTCP
traffic which is not used for media. It's really just for round trip time
of a UDP packet, not for end to end time of a single audio packet/frame
through the system.
