I am confused if you wish both jackd to stop running and the bubbles not 
to show or just the bubbles.

Anyway, The timeout in qjackctl is (as indicated) a hint. The DE may 
choose a different timeout. I don't know which DE you are using, but in 
xfce there is a setting dialog for Notifications in with the other system 
settings. In my case I can change the look (theme), position, opacity and 
timeout. The default is 10s. Changing this would affect all of you 
notifications, not just qjackctl, but if that is distracting, I would 
guess others may be as well. If you don't want any notifications, don't 
start the notification app(let)... probably also a part of system
