Any time fcaps or a setuid app under SECURE_NOROOT is used to result in a

non-zero pE we will crate a new audit record which contains the entire set
of known information about the executable in question, fP, fI, fE, fversion
and includes the process's pE, pI, pP.  Before and after the bprm capability
are applied.  This record type will only be emitted from execve syscalls.

an example of making ping use fcaps instead of setuid:

setcap "cat_net_raw+pe" /bin/ping

* ieieeeeee, an audit function without a return code!
* This function might fail! I decided that it didn't matter. We are too late
* to fail the syscall and the information isn't REQUIRED for any purpose. It's
* just nice to have. We should be able to look at past audit logs to figure
* out this process's current cap set along with the fcaps from the PATH record
* and use that to come up with the final set. Yeah, its ugly, but all the info
* is still in the audit log. So I'm not going to bother mentioning we failed
* if we couldn't allocate memory.
* If someone changes their mind they could create the aux record earlier and
* then search here and use that earlier allocation. But I don't wanna.
