Since the update from version 11.1 to version 12.0, pulseaudio re-enables the built-in soundcard of my Lenovo Thinkpad T430, although it is disabled.

I use an external soundcard due to sound quality. The Built-in Audio () is manually set to "Off" in pavucontrol and the external soundcard is set to "Analog Stereo Output".


- the external soundcard is switched off (has no power)
- or the system was suspended / hibernated / rebooted

and any sound is played, Pulseaudio re-enables the Built-in Audio (which should stay "Off", because manually set to "Off").

Additional info:
* package version(s)
pulseaudio 12.2-2
pulseaudio-alsa 2-4
pavucontrol 1:3.0+23+g335c26c-1
paprefs 1.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
As described above.

The kernel module of the onboard audio device is snd_hda_intel.
