Thank you !
I misunderstood the "packet number" meaning. Beause the objects I captured are very small, and can embedded in one packet, I'll try to capture large objects to check it!

That's the frame number of the last frame that contains data from the object. 
It is *NOT* the only frame from which the save operation takes data. 
(Yes, I just tried it on an HTTP capture that has a GIF that took multiple TCP segments.  It saves the *reassembled* object, *not* just stuff from the last frame.)
