One of the log are regular events like this

"Jack 'Front Headphone Jack' is now plugged in"

Luke, do you see from the log what's going on exactly?

Title:
  Volume notification keeps popping up constantly(the notifyosd bubble
  on top-right corner)

Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 yesterday, I did a clean install while
  preserving the home directory which is mounted in a separate
  partition. Even during the installation I had constant volume
  notification bubble appearing on the top-right corner of my screen, it
  would come and go about twice every minute. I just thought it was due
  to installing hardware drivers or something but the problem persisted
  even when I booted into the freshly installed system. I did some
  searching and two users reported the exact problem. And one more
  suggested this happens because constant disconnect and reconnect of
  the sound card which makes sense as the sound settings flashes briefly
  during every popup. Someone on IRC suggested to kill pulseaudio and
  thus restart it, that does not fix the issue. I also tried the Live
  environment thinking it might be due to some old config files in home
  partition (which was preserved during upgrade), but this problem
  happens in the live environment as well, which makes sense because it
  was present during installation as well.
