Oh wow, that's definitely an interesting find (Amazon has had the same listing description and I never noticed). I'm not sure if this actually confirms anything 100%, but I was at the original Kodansha USA announcement panel for these boxsets and remember the staff specifying that each set would match up with the seasons. For me, the ending volume for the set could still very well change (Or they could morph this to a 2-parter like the Season 1 manga box sets), as 16 is indeed a very odd place to end.
What will finally 100% confirm the episode number will likely be when Japanese e-tailers start listing the season 3 DVD details. I don't necessarily doubt the current leaked information of 24, but it would be nice to finally get assurance from the Japanese side as well :)
Do you think these mean anything in regards to the season length? In the description, it says the first half of season 3 will be vols. 13-17, & the second half will be 18-22.
Well considering Kodansha on Amazon has listed two part manga box collections for season 3 I think it's absolutely confirmed to be 24 episodes.
I’m pretty sure they are AOT Manga that come in a package/bundle which is the box. You can get them here
