How to interpret BIND 9 JSON Counters

Hi All,
Wonder if you can help, I'm looking to input the BIND 9 JSON stats file to our OSS PM tool and I need some basic information on the counter types.
Looking at the various counters I need to understand whether they are of type gauge (a snapshot in time) or counter (we need to calculate the delta between the last and the last but one values received).

I think they are gauge but would be great if you can confirm.

Additionally is there guidance on how the Network Elements and the time would be aggregated. Would they be aggregated by sum?

Please feedback if my ask isn't clear. I hope you can help.
