My understanding is that storing and restoring ALSA volumes is done by
alsactl fired by some udev rule or init script in general.  If you unplug
or switch off your device it is too late to run alsactl on it so the usual
magic cannot succeed. In contrast, when you switch off your computer with
the FTU still plugged in and switched on the volumes will be preserved. At
least on my machine.
