"OP-Atom doesn't mandate clip wrapping. See for example D-Cinema files
which use frame wrapping. OP-1A doesn't mandate frame wrapping. See for
example AS-02 which uses clip wrapping in OP-1A for audio.

I see the context for this is from the FFmpeg forums. I'm not on the
email list, so you might want to point them to a libMXF commit I made
fairly recently:
This commit should provide some guidance in how the essence container
labels can be summarised to extract the clip/frame wrapping information.
bmx has some extra analysis beyond that, but the libMXF function should
cover most cases."
