The IC input RF impedance is usually a few kilohms for the differential pair.
The IC output RF impedance is typically a few hundred ohms, and the load has a high impedance of a few tens of kilohms.
Both devices are available with end-to-end resistance options of 50 kilohms (k) and 100 k and can be used as a potentiometer or as a 2-terminal, variable rheostat.
The values of the resistors were selected on the basis that the load will be in the tens of kilohms and have a small impact on the DC impedance of the circuit.
