I've noticed that the startup volume for applications sometimes jumps by
itself to 100 %

I'm viewing happenings in pavucontrol, the applications tab - I've seen this
with sox, mplayer and rhythmbox so far

play a stereo file and set the volume low (say 10%)
quit the sound player application

play the same file again, or another stereo file - the volume is at the
level you set it before.

now play a mono file with the same application - the volume by itself (no
user input) is now 100%

set the volume down to 10%
quit the sound player application
play the mono file again, the volume is still 10%.

quit the sound player
play a stereo file -  the volume by itself is now 100%
