The volume controls for mic and phone are actually hw mixing volumes that do not affect the recording path, therefore only the record selector belongs to capture tab, but not the volume control.

May sound unreal, but if you look at the specific changes I´ve done, you will notice that I just added "Playback" to the mic volume and mic switch and changed "Phone Capture" to "Phone Playback". From the ALSA amixer.c I know, that there is some string compare on "playback" and "capture", don´t know if it is the same with the alsamixer, but this would explain the different behaviour after changing the names. I can see the result here - the controls are in the right place now and they are doing what they were supposed to.
> What is the actual problem that is is being fixed here?
- microphone playback could not be unmuted before, that means that the hw mixing path from mic in to spk out/line out could never work - fixed by this
- microphone volume was shown twice in "All" tab of Alsamixer, but running synchroniously, if you change one, the other will follow with the same value - fixed by this
- if microphone voulme was changed in capture tab, the volume also changed in playback tab - fixed by this
- microphone was never shown as active capture source, even if it was selected correctly, neither in capture tab nor in all-tab - fixed by this
- phone was shown as selected capture source in capture tab, but actually it was not selected, instead it was muted/unmuted everytime one tries to select it as capture source - fixed by this
