Inconsistent sample name used for x11-bell

Bug Description

A startup script is being patched to load module-x11-bell with a given sample name:

debian/patches/0006-load-module-x11-bell.patch:+ @PACTL_BINARY@ load-module module-x11-bell "display=$DISPLAY" "sample=bell.ogg" > /dev/null

yet in the default example:
src/daemon/ x11-bell /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/bell.oga

As this is an example, no such sample gets loaded, but the patched script does not use either of the desired sample name or the matching file extension.

I recommend updating the script to load the module using "sample=x11-bell" to be consistent with upstream and the fact that the sample name is not specific to a given format.

This was discovered while trying to figure out how to set the bell sound on XFCE.
