Aha, I see. No, sorry, I didn't mean that, I should've been more clear. But I get your point, thanks.

@JamesSnell - I haven't given up using FP, it will still be activated with faster shutters than 1/320 (or 250), right? About the freezing and only balancing the light - isn't this achieved by flash compensation (sometimes combined with exposure compensation)? Which will still be available with 1/250 (Auto FP). Am I wrong?

Sure, but with 1/320 (Auto FP) you can use slower shutter speeds, can't you? I mean, shooting at 1/60 for example would be well exposed with this option, as this does fix the fastest possible shutter speed, not the current one. Or I'm wrong?

Yeah, it seems like this, but I needed something a bit more to understand it completely. I posted an answer by myself to check if I've understood this correctly. +1 from me for your answer.

@YaoBoLu - not exactly. I've posted a summary by myself, you can see it and comment, if you think something is wrong with my statements. Thanks again for the provided source.

@YaoBoLu - this source awesome! So, correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I understand, it's perfectly fine to use 1/320 (Auto FP) all the time, just to be careful with the shutter speed. Because using <1/320s shutter speed, the flash works normally and using >1/320s the flash uses this "Auto FP" mode, which produces hundreds/thousands pulses in a sec, to make the exposure correct, but the "downside" is - less power produced. Am I correct? If so and if you write some summarizing answer + quoting that link in your comment, I'll accept it. Thanks! Really useful article.
