Distributing snaps that are subject to software patents

I know most of us are not lawyers and legal experts. But I wanted to ask this anyway.

Is distributing a shared library (libffmpeg.so) that is subject to software patents as a snap the same as distributing an application (ffmpeg) subject to software patents.

Is one of the developers of these snaps more or less responsible for paying the patent fees? Does the way snap is packaged affect their responsibility? Any ideas?
