Yes, it is. Most file formats don't even have a sense of frame number.
And even then, seeking is not exact (because you can only seek to
keyframes) so having a "seek to frame" would just suggest a false
sense of exactness. If you _do_ happen to have a file where exact
frame seeking is possible, just compute the time (in seconds, based on
framerate) of the frame you want and use -ss.
