I use stock installed for MKLinux (Debian Stretch)

Glad to hear it is not pulse doing it, but the way your interface works, 
sure makes it look like you are doing the sound volume policing.

The sound police seemingly is installed on the distro.
I mean we are adults, We can set maximum limits for sound that makes 
sense. These limits just create even worse problems. I dont need a 
blimin volume safespace.

Thank you very much for pactl.
The following works great
pactl set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ +10%
pactl set-sink-volume @DEFAULT_SINK@ -10%

Now I have t try and get rid of the junk code that is currently 
connected to my keyboard volume controls and replace it with the above
