In the case WirePlumber is used, what is the status of bug 998073?

  wireplumber: fails to automatically switch to headphones when connected

(which is an issue for those who use both speakers and headphones
and want to automatically switch between them). The upstream bug


is still open and users are still reporting problems. There is no such
issue with PA.
