No, the numbers shown at the end of a vacuum verbose printout reflect
the current cluster-wide FSM demand. BTW you do *not* want to use FULL
because that's not going to reflect the FSM requirements when you are
just running normal vacuums.
I would vacuum all your databases (to make sure each one's FSM contents
are pretty up-to-date) and then take the numbers shown by the last one
as your targets.
If you find yourself having to raise max_fsm_relations, it may be
necessary to repeat the vacuuming cycle before you can get a decent
total for max_fsm_pages. IIRC, the vacuum printout does include in
"needed" a count of pages that it would have stored if it'd had room;
but this is only tracked for relations that have an FSM relation entry.
