[pulseaudio-discuss] sink port unavailable even though it shouldn't be

I have googled for a while and found nothing.
My Realtek ALC262 does not seem to detect that something is plugged into
the rear headphones connector. Sound is playing through the internal
speaker (it's a deaktop PC) and the headphones. list-sinks shows the

When I set the active port to analog-output-headphones, everything works
as it should. No sound through the internal speaker.

But still, in gnome and elsewhere, the port is not listed. In fact, the
port remains unavailable, even though I set it as the active port.

So how can I configure pulseaudio, such that it always thinks that
analog-output-headphones is always available? Or is that something that
must be done at kernel driver level?
