Trouble in understanding base-time

I have some trouble in understanding base-time. As per the documentation,
base-time gets set only when pipeline goes to playing state. 
1. So what base-time can can an element(non sink) use till the pipeline goes
to playing state?
2. For example, this pipeline will take 30 seconds before going to playing
    gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc is-live=1 ! x264enc ! mpegtsmux ! queue
min-threshold-time=30000000000 ! fakesink sync=1 
    How can mpegtsmux calculate base-time and running time in first

Thanks in advance
