[PD] poly second inlet

What does the second inlet of [poly] do?

It doesn't seem to change either the number of voices nor to dynamically 
enable/disable voice stealing.

The help patch doesn't say anything about it; there is a comment that says:
"<-- scroll to change the value of delay in milliseconds."
where the "<--" arrow points to nothing.

I thought the autor of the help patch may have forgotten to put a number 
box connected to the right inlet (which would be just next to the 
comment); however I have tried to connect a numberbox and I don't see 
any delay, neither on note-on's nor on note-off's (the latter was what I 
expected, since it would be very useful to account for release time when 
managing polyphony)

Is that comment an error (probably copy-pasted by accident from another 
object's help patch)? Or does the second inlet actually control some 
delay that I'm not seing because I don't know where to look?
