As your dmesg suggests, the *1 devices belong to pad0, which is a
virtual device, so the behaviour you are seeing is expected. Cf.
pad(4) for what it's useful for.

From what will be NetBSD 5.1 on there is another driver for HD
audio devices; hdaudio(4). It is supposed to replace azalia(4) and
to give more meaningful names to mixer controls. You might thus
want to give a kernel from the netbsd-5 branch a try. Don't hold
your breath, though, because it probably still won't work well with
any mixer tool from pkgsrc.
