I'm curious as to whether this sort of thing is the hardware is
initialising itself in this peculiar state, and the software just leaves
things "as they are," or whether the software is preset with silly
defaults.

While muting line-in is probably a good default (most people probably
don't use it, and having everything turned up creates noise), but some
of the other levels being muted by default isn't (e.g. master front,
PCM, etc.).

And there's always someone who reckons just one volume control will
suffice, while being ignorant of the fact that different sound sources
can have wildly different sound levels, or that having the microphone
audio being turned up along with their CD player is not a good idea.
