maximum volume when device connects, can't adjust unless I open sound settings

Bug Description

Pretty much what the subject says

Expected behaviour when an audio device connects:

* sound switches to the device
* volume is restored to the value it had before disconnecting (or 100% if there is no stored value)
* volume control indicator controls the volume for the Bluetooth device

What actually happens:

* sound switches to the device
* the volume is at 100%; however, in sound settings the previous value is preserved, it's just not applied
* the volume control indicator controls the builtin audio, not the Bluetooth device
* after manually selecting the BT device in sound settings, the volume control indicator is able to control it; the previous volume is still not restored until volume control is actually used

Looks like upstream bug covers at least the part about "the volume control indicator controls the builtin audio, not the Bluetooth device". The part about forgetting the volume is not covered (I don't know whether that would be a feature request).
