I've looked up the note [1], which reads:

"The ‘-vsync 0’ is necessary to prevent |ffmpeg| from duplicating each
output frame to accomodate the originally detected frame rate. "

I've tried with:
$ ffmpeg -i video.avi -vf select='not(mod(n\,1500))' -f image2 -sameq
-vsync 0 delme_images/%03d.jpg

Same result: Gets stuck at frame #1500 and exports 100 images.
