It is pretty clear to me (see below). mediacapture-fromelement has no say here.

[mediacapture-main](https://w3c.github.io/mediacapture-main/#mediastreams-in-media-elements) says this about currentTime when srcObject is a MediaStream (in the table, for the currentTime row):

> The initial value is 0 and the values increments linearly in real time whenever the stream is playing.

I cannot imagine the intention of "playing" to include when the media element is paused, even if "playing" isn't well defined in the media element spec. Potentially playing, if that's what we end up changing mediacapture-main to, explicitly says that it's only true [when `paused` is false](https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/media.html#potentially-playing).
