Is pulseaudio trying to use 8-bit mu-law encoding?  sound(4) says that
/dev/sound and /dev/audio are the same except for /dev/audio sets the
mode to mu-law on open.   So I wonder if this is just hiding a bug where
pulseaudio fails to configure things.

I don't object to this change, but don't feel I understand what's going
on well enough and the consequences to others to nod.  It would be good
to hear from others who use pulseaudio what they think.
