I am a totally new to PulseAudio,  so this may be a stupid question, but why
are you using the rtp  module if you want everything to stay on a single
machine?  If you have multiple audio devices on that machine,  I was under
the impression that PulseAudio could handle moving sources between those
devices just fine without the use of the rtp module.

Alternatively, you might try setting up a firewall on the box to block the
outgoing rtp packets.
