Documentation ( and states that `sys._getframe()` "raises [...] an auditing event with no arguments".
However, Python 3.8-3.10 provide the frame as argument to the hook function. Python 3.11 behaves consistently with documentation.
But I couldn't find the change mentioned in the change log. Therefore, I'm uncertain whether that's intentional or not, so whether it'll remain in the release version.

This is demonstrated by running snippet ``
import sys
in various versions:
