PulseAudio is selecting the USB device for output because that's correct
behaviour for USB speakers. And PulseAudio thinks the mic is a speaker
because that's what ALSA seems to be telling it.
The real problem here is that the Linux kernel seems to be reporting the
mic is an output device. Much like bug 1749207.
** Package changed: pulseaudio (Ubuntu) => linux (Ubuntu)
** Summary changed:
- Ubuntu Budgie selects USB mic as default audio output after every reboot.
