Just because STAC/IDT codecs have no mixer widget. It's a hardware

OK, then it's likely a typical problem of the cabling and the case model.
In many cases, an AC97-style case is connected to a HD-audio board.

Yes, that's how no_jd model works.
But, keeping the headphone output even with unplugged state means you
are wasting unneeded power. The driver powers down the circuit
appropriately if a pin isn't being used. That's why the headphone
detection is implemented as default.
And, whether the HP detection works or not doesn't depend on the
mobo. It's rather the connection. So, giving the fixed "no-jd"
option for a certain PCI SSID is basically wrong. Someone else might
have a same mobo but with a right case with the front-panel jack
That is, it's fine to create a new quirk model, but assigning
statically to that workaround isn't always acceptable.
