PulseAudio 14.2 interfering with auto-mute, unwanted simultaneous headphone and speaker sound

I’ve previously had no problems, but since a recent update to pulseaudio 14.2, the alsamixer auto-mute setting seems to be getting disabled every time I remove my headphones from the 1.8mm jack port.

This only occurs on disconnect. On reconnect, the automute function stays disabled and I then have sound from both my speakers and my headphones (which I don’t want) and the only way I can correct this is to go into alsamixer and re-enable it. (sudo alsactl store does not work)

I’m thinking this is either pulseaudio or KDE, but I can’t figure what config file to change in what manner to make this stop.

ALSA data is showing Auto-Mute Mode as disabled
( amixer -c0 | grep -A3 Mute )

  Simple mixer control 'Auto-Mute Mode',0
  Capabilities: enum
  Items: 'Disabled' 'Enabled'
  Item0: 'Disabled'

as a workaround instead of using alsamixer, you can change it with this command

amixer -c0 sset 'Auto-Mute Mode' Enabled

If the command response confirms this setting has changed - Item0: 'Enabled'

Save ALSA settings again with - sudo alsactl store

and check if setting remains enabled after - sudo alsactl restore
