VU-meter decay speed in "db/sec"

As many of us know, the standard VU-meter fallback or decay speed is set to "300ms".
But how does this decay speed translate into "number of dBs per second"?

Am I to take the entire visible VU-spectrum of 23dB and assume 23dB per second, or .. how would one calculate this?

Note: I mean decay, fallback. Not rise- or 'attack' speed (which is the same in VU-meters anyway).

thx for any input

I suppose it's 300ms 0db/-20db
