Yup, pactl is meant for scripting (it's man page is also out of date as
it supports more than that). pacmd does not use the pulse protocol and
needs a special module to be loaded and will only work on the local
machine, ignoring completely the various mechanisms to control the server.
Besides the original question was about listing modules not setting
And besides, setting the default sink is really not that useful.
module-stream-restore will save the sink a given stream has used and
will restore it. The "default" sink is just a fallback when no other
routing rule is encountered.
