That silence doesn't necessarily show up in the decode - if the format
contains enough info the decoder could skip padding.  I don't know about
mp3, but I just decoded two Ogg Vorbis files that should play seamless
to raw and looked at the output:  The first file gives valid samples
right to the end, and the next file starts with convincing continuations
of those samples.
