Not with the hdsp mixer (I mean the matrix mixer in the hdsp based RME
sound cards, not the software); it's state is not saved by ALSA, and I
even doubt that it can be read at all.

To unmute the card at boot time it is possible to use amixer, though.
See also the LAU thread "RME HDSP 9632 - amixer control" for more details.
