This looks incorrect.

MI audio layer synthesizes all streams coming from userland in 16bit,
even if the userland stream has precision higher than 16bit.
MI audio layer can and does handle any precision of underlying
hardware.  For example, the hardware of vraiu(4) on hpcmips (probably)
accepts only 10bit, the hardware of mavb(4) on sgimips (probably)
accepts only 24bit.
If the hardware supports 16bit precision and one or more precision
higher than 16bit like hdafg(4), I think that there is no or less
advantage for MD drivers to choice/support the precision higher than
