I'm not sure what is "my example" but as you noticed, the host:port value
of the SOCKS parameter is not cared in the current implementation and
something like SOCKS="-:0" also works.  A SOCKS parameter is necessary to
indicate forwarding to the next SOCKS server (a DeleGate as a SOCKS server
over SockMux in this case) from this DeleGate. 
Also you can restrict the terget hosts to be forwarded to the next hop by
SOCKS parameter as SOCKS="-:0:*.localdomain,!" for example.

If your internsion is just to reduce memory usage for socket buffers,
you can do it only with SOCKS, without SockMux.  There is a configuration
parameter to set the size of the socket buffers to be used as
MAXIMA=socksend:1024,sockrecv:1024 for example.
But unfortunately, it seems not implemented to be applied to sockets for
