Well if you have a g729 call up and its G729 passthru encoder/decoders will not be allocated till needed.  If you record the call you'll require two decoders to record the call since it has to decode both sides and mux the call.  I did test calls that were G729 end to end and no coders got allocated.  The allocation happened when recording started.  Also if you do fake ringback you'll allocate coders too.
