  Nail (engineering) Summary
In engineering, woodworking and construction, a nail is a pin-shaped, sharp object of hard metal, typically steel, used as a fastener.
Nails are typically driven into the workpiece by a hammer or by a nail gun driven by compressed air or a small explosive charge.
Nails are made in a great variety of forms for specialized purposes; the common everyday kind of nail is sometimes called a "wire nail" to distinguish it from nails in general.

 APA Blog for Professional Associates: Fasteners
Based on the test results, the recommended allowable nail withdrawal strength for plywood and OSB panels, expressed as an equivalent specific gravity, is 0.40 for plain or screw shank nails and 0.70 for ring shank nails.
In this case, slant nailing might be used to maintain the minimum 3/8-inch edge distance of the panel and adequate edge distance of the lumber.
The splitting of the framing caused by nails has very little to do with the size of the nail head, but is strongly influenced by the shank diameter of the nail.

Knowing this, the conclusion is that the 3/8-inch spacing is referring to the centerline-to-centerline spacing of the nail shank.
