Which I'd expect, since resizing the terminal window is equivalent to
resizing the TTY frames on that terminal.

Yes (if menu-bar-mode is turned on; otherwise top_window_y is zero).
But, crucially, it does not update FrameRows for the frame's terminal.

No, I mean if everything else does nothing, in which case you call
adjust_frame_size already.

Maybe I don't understand what bothers you in this scenario that caused
you to ask that question.

OK, and...?

Both SIGWINCH and set-frame-size change the frame dimensions.  The
difference is that the former gets the new dimensions from
get_tty_size, which queries the terminal driver, while the latter gets
the dimensions from the caller.

FrameCols/FrameRows communicates the terminal size to cursor-motion
commands in cm.c.  When we want to use a frame smaller than the
terminal screen, we modify these values accordingly.

IMO, FRAME_LINES for the TTY frame that is currently displayed on its
terminal should always equal to FrameRows for that terminal (and
similarly for FrameCols).  I thought we previously agreed on this,
since a TTY frame usually behaves as a maximized frame.

No, it means the opposite: any change in dimensions of a TTY frame
should be mirrored in FrameCols/FrameRows.

Neither.  FrameRows stands for the cm.c notion of the terminal's
height.  Its value can be modified either (1) by
handle_window_change_signal, which queries the terminal via
get_tty_size, or (2) by some Lisp that calls set-frame-size, which
should eventually call adjust_frame_size.
