The DESeq() and nbinomWaldTest() functions have an argument betaPrior, and details on the estimation of the prior is in the man page for nbinomWaldTest. This is also mentioned in Figure 1 of the vignette and Section A where we describe the changes since DESeq. The effect of the prior is to shrink log fold changes more or less depending on shape of the likelihood.
