So why cache size is different in example below?

But if I set cache to 32Mb or 64Mb (I like this numbers, and it's enough for
all my needs) I have problems with network streams. For example the first
stream from the first example, tries to prefill 20%. 7Mb for 96.0 kbit
realtime audio!

It's impossible to set common cache setting in config.
