Yes, it lacks documentation.

Yes, it is meant exactly for that. The patch series I was referring is
this one:

(and next)

I thought I had cced you on one of the patches, but it may have been

With this patch series, when a filter reaches EOF, the link->current_pts
contains the timestamp of the end, including the duration of the last
frame: from that, you can implement your patch in a very similar way.

(Although vf_fps would need to be rewritten to take advantage of the
link's FIFO, but that is more work, and not required immediately.)
