I don't know if it's a plasma issue or pulseaudio or something else. Everytime I boot my computer and start plasma, sound level is raised to 100%.
how is the sound in pavucontrol ?
I'll check next time I reboot. I forgot to say that I can control the sound level afterwards, it works well. It simply comes back to 100% after a reboot.

My guess it is a pulseaudio problem.
I have modified /etc/pulse configuration files to set sink and audio levels.
pavucontrol shows my settings.
First time an application sends an alarm sound it comes out at 100%
I can crank it back to the usual 25% and next alarm sound is within setting.
For instance you get into systemsettings5, make a change and try to leave without saving the change will cause the app to send sound to pulse.
"pacmd dump" shows
set-source-volume alsa_output.pci-0000_00_14.2.analog-stereo.monitor 0x10000
after setting my analog output at 25%
i think this is ca pulseaudio issue.

Yep, about 3 hours ago I hit the problem again when running xfce DE.
I'm running into this problem too, but not just on login.
If I have Notifications set to play an ogg file at log out, the volume jumps to 100% just before it plays, no matter where the volume control is set. The same thing happens if I play the file while in System Settings, to see what it sounds like. (I downloaded these ogg files to personalize my system. They work fine with Mageia 5.)
The setting in pavucontrol is set at around 50%, and is ignored. Possibly related, Notifications volume control refuses to change from within System Settings, and there is no "Apply" button to save the settings if they could be changed.
Also having this issue in Mageia 6 sta 1/Plasma5.
My plasma system always starts with sound at maximum level =>
Sound level raised to its maximum without user intervention
*** Bug 20688 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Bug still present in Mageia 6 RC / Plasma
Steps to reproduce :
- set sound level to 10% with plasma applet
- open system settings
- open shortcuts
- try to affect a keyboard shortcut which already exists to a command
- a warning window appears and a warning sound is emitted with sound level at 100%
- sound level is now at 100%
This seems to solve this case :
For your information, the default value for this setting is no in Ubuntu 16.10
Unfortunately, the scenario described in Comment 7 doesn't appear to be affected by the change from Comment 12, even after a reboot. Playing a notification sound still raises the volume to 100%. The notifications volume setting in system settings/multimedia is ignored.
I noticed when I right click the volume icon, Audio Volume Settings, Maximum Volume defaults to 100%. Making any changes does not keep. It always reverts back to 100%. If I adjust the volume from Playback Devices, it will accept the change until a reboot. Mga6 Sta2 iso since March.
This one needs to enter the Errata given how annoying it is. Ideally with a workaround if someone knows one.

A workaround is given in Comment 12.
A workaround given in Comment 12 is not perfect but at least I'll keep my hearing ;). Thanks for link Sébastien.
Already in Errata:
I haven't had the issue in the past few weeks. I'm not certain what fixed it or how but it's working normally now. I do keep up with updates.
Can you check if the update candidate in bug 21284 comment 13 fixes this issue?
Unfortunately the workaround in Comment 12 solves only half of the issue. It makes sure that the overall volume setting remains as I select (in my case at around 50%). But when I start listening to an internet radio (wwww.classicalmusicamerica.com), the Firefox audio setting jumps back to 100% after each reboot.
I have reinstalled with the same image but different USB. This issue is gone for me.
This fixed by http://advisories.mageia.org/MGAA-2017-0054.html is all worked as expected.
