Great this matches what I deduced from the numbers. I note that by replacing a 
cake instance with itself (so not changing the configuration) will reset the 
counters.
Question: am I right to assume that the _adj values are what you pass in as the 
true packet size into cake's calculation?
I really like these outputs so far (running flent I saw:

Which is pretty much what I expected (speedtest ran over an effective MTU1492 
PPPoE link*), but I still want to make more in-depth tests. Now we just need to 
carry this nto lede to get more testers. Plus it might make sense to merge 
tc-adv with iproute2-cake-next so that we have one master repository for the tc 
changes as well. I believe that before the xstats and Jonathan's recent updates 
iproute2-cake-next  was more up to date, but I am probably wrong...

Best Regards

Son between this sample and the speedtest the host exchanged MTU1500 packets 
with the local network...
