Good, I guess it must have been C4307 that threw me off.

Okay, makes sense.

I was wondering about them as well. Joerg said that having them
close to the microphone, before the choke, would be better, "to
give RF a path to GND, so actual HF voltage isn't that high".

I'm not sure this makes sense to me. So I simulated an LC and a
CL configuration [1]. I found that they perform pretty much
identically when input and output impedance are high. They do
show a marked difference if the output impedance is very low,
and also a low input impedance causes some slight differences,
with L-at-input showing better performance.
