You had about a year to complain that the Volume Control feature didn't
include your use case, and given the 0.01% of the population using their
sound system like you do, I doubt it would have crossed our minds that

The volume control uses PulseAudio, it doesn't use ALSA directly
anymore, so no, there's no secret GConf key for that.
