Yes. The sound card allows itself to be unloaded when the pass-through mixer
levels are non-zero. This is reasonable iff it can be reloaded without
destroying those levels again.

Yes it does. It can be a few seconds between initialisation and the
post-action running. That's plenty of time to miss what the news announcer
was saying about whether you need to go to work today (my gf is a teacher)
or to wake the entire house if the mixer levels don't default to zero.
