The sampling algorithm starts with "When a packet arrives on an interface" which may make some believe that only inbound traffic is to be sampled. I even heard people (working for a specific vendor) saying "this (inbound only sampling) is what the standard specifies", which is not really accurate.

Are most networks still only sampling on ingress?

We sample in both directions as standard, and the resulting data tracks
