Low frequency means the transistor is on much longer and off much longer. High frequency means the same just more on and off in a given period of time. The efficiency of a transistor goes down as the frequency gets higher resulting in more heat in the transistor. So if your trying to dissipate regenerated power from a motor in deceleration an inefficient transistor may be better at stopping the motor.

like I said I dont want to argue im just curious where that comes from and im open to being wrong.
Straight from the manual I guess:
"3F. Brake Frequency
The brake force will be larger if the frequency is low; you will get a smoother brake force when the value is higher"

@OP: Have you checked this setting (quoting the manual again)?

"3G. Brake Control
Option 1: Linear Hobbywing has recommended using this mode under all circumstances. The braking effect is a bit weaker in this mode than in Traditional brake mode, but it’s easy to control and brings great control feel.
Option 2: Traditional This brake mode is the same as to the XERUN series of ESCs, the brake force is stronger.
Option 3: Hybrid The ESC switches the brake mode between Linear and Traditional as per the vehicle speed to prevent the slide (between tires and track) from affecting the braking effect.
Note 6: Please select the right mode for your vehicle as per the track condition, motor performance, and etc"

Don't know how much effect this setting has, but maybe worth a try?
