The inward-tilting facades of the new sideline structures were designed in part to redirect sound back into the bowl. This is a predictable and measurable acoustical effect, and has been confirmed post-construction in the stadium. It's not really a matter of interpretation. The effect is more pronounced the closer you get to field level.
The new scoreboards do nothing to "hold in sound", however, as they do not tilt inward. Any reflected sound off of them goes up and out. The new speaker array in the North scoreboard and how it's used does add to game day noise.
