Yes it does. If you launch your audio-only ffmpeg stream (but not your
segmenter), and then separately issue a "receiver" as such:

$ ffmpeg -i udp://

you will see that you receive an mpegts stream with only AAC audio.
(Alas, when trying, my ffmpeg "receiver" took almost 10 seconds to pick
up the stream.)

Perhaps the segmenter is picky about the TS format, and ffmpeg isn't
complying to its requirements. *shrug*
