you can change it, but it may not have a noticeable impact on the listener buffering. players will buffer whatever they buffer, regardless of how much the dnas is buffering the source (this is what the dnas settings will influence). the dnas settings allow you to tailor the buffer to prevent, for example, a remote source from underrunning and the dnas dropping the connection causing the source to reconnect.

one thing the dnas buffer cfg may influence is the initial burst that the dnas will send on listener connect. in that case, the most it could possibly send at full network speed should be the dnas buffer.

each player buffers bytes, how many bytes determines the listen delay, that's why a 128kbps stream has generally less delay than a 48kbps stream in the same player.

audio player apps may determine the bitrate and adjust their buffer accordingly, but a web player will likely use the browser's buffer which is not likely to be optimized for media streams.

so, if adjusting the dnas buffer has no impact on listener delay, change it back.
