I've not had any problems using the RW/FWD one frame command. It's one of the very few ways to get the playhead to be "frame friendly". That always lands my playhead at the head of the frame, but sometimes at the tail of the previous. Not that it matters much. But to further illustrate the need to show bits, the pic shows both locations as frame 15, but the second one is obviously frame 16.
But for "spotting" audio to a frame head, it's much better to not use the playhead but reference from the region itself. Regions will follow the snap settings, unlike the playhead which likes ticks. So Snap to Frame, Snap to Absolute Value, and the region anchor lands at the head of the frame, every time. Then adjust the anchor location in the sample editor to fine tune exactly what event happens at the frame head.
Make sure "Lock Arrange Position When Moving Anchor" is unchecked.
