AFAIK those settings are used by the gsettingsaudiosink in GStreamer,
which is no longer in 1.x.  It really depends on what software you're
using, and whether it's hard-coding use of autoaudiosink.

I questioned whether you'd actually been using the PulseAudio backend
connecting to JACK though because there wasn't a way to specify which
JACK ports to connect to until recently (eg. not in 14.04).  The only
other way to do it is to use something other than GStreamer itself to
control which ports are used (eg. QJackCtl patchbay), which is what
I'm still doing on my 14.04 setup.

Best wishes,
