Even a muted microphone would still appear as a choosable device under
their preferences.

I'd be looking at the output from dmesg before and after plugging in the
headset, to see what the system notices being plugged in. Probably,
some unknown hardware will be detected, showing just a product code
number, rather than the name of something that it knows how to deal
with. Post that, here.
