It turns out be both my installation - and me ;)

Reading The Feature5 Manual (RTFM) better, I think section 1.1.6 
explains the situation:
"That is because the Cinelerra ffmpeg is a known static build and is 
usually the latest stable/released version.
In the current case of Leap 15, libx264 and libx265 are not built in and 
this can be debilitating;
You can always run “ffmpeg -formats” and “ffmpeg -codecs” to see what is 
available on your system."
I have the RPM binary packages installed for Leap15, which is unbundled 
builds which links dynamic to the system ffmpeg and libx264 
(Cinelerra10bit to libx265).
Obviously the current installed system ffmpeg/libx264 (as already 
pointed out ) require higher versions to support optional 'yuv422p10le' 
(10-bit for Cin).
Why not ffmpeg/libx265 doesn't confirm the pixel format 'yuv422p10le' 
(10-bit) I don't know, maybe this also need a higher version of ffmpeg 
if Cinx should support 10-bit color depth .....

Feature5 section 1.2:
.... alternatively there are some pre-built dynamic or static binaries
The “tars” directory contains single-user static builds for different 
Do NOT download the LEAP 10bit version unless you use h264 (it can't 
render 8bit h264).

page 14 for Leap 42 and Leap 15 (at least on my current, open Feature5 
The 'zypper ar' .... commands should be updated from 'cincv' to 'cingg'
