Apart from the fact that I simply don't understand the 
second sentence:
What is missing here imo is what is unclear in your opinion 
about the documentation (or for which input stream the 
documentation does not match the behaviour).
Note that valid H.264 streams do not necessarily contain 
keyframes and therefore do not necessarily contain packets 
with this flag set.
