I'd guess this depends on the instrument.

If the sound were switched off completely, there would be audible
effects; that "certain extent" is long enough so that it sounds

The "natural length" applies to percussion sounds, which don't react
to note-offs.

For sustained sounds, I'd guess that the first note-off applies to all.
