I forgot to say: almost certainly not.
Seeking with AVSEEK_FLAG_ANY should work just fine.
It might make sense to use that automatically for H.264 with
sei_recovery_frame_cnt >= 0 (there seems no easy way to
get this info out of FFmpeg. Well, except by inducing it
from key_frame == 1 and frame_type != I I guess).
