Until it was migrated over to music in general FYI to combat loudness war habits or at least create consistency in perceived loudness. IOW, streaming services using LUFs algos for playback don't have anything to do with broadcast at this point. In this respect, it's a good judge of perceived loudness of an entire song where the person mixing/mastering needs to decide which numbers they use and how, aka short term, integrated, momentary and so on.
If it requires a null test to find it, it is by definition minuscule.
