"Mute Audio in Background" stops working when loading is finished

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?

Yes/No (no difference)

Have you disabled/removed all your mods and addons?

Yes, clean Community folder.

Brief description of the issue:

I usually tab out of the game while waiting for the menu or a flight to load, and as such I have the option “Mute Audio in Background” setting engaged. With the Sim Update 10 beta, whenever the menu or a flight are finished loading, audio starts playing in the background and will not be muted until I tab in and then out again. Also in very few cases, when the flight starts the window becomes maximised, as if I tabbed in on my own.
In case this is an intended change, please make only the “whoosh” sound play in the background, and not all of the application audio.
Please note that this bug appeared in the first Sim Update 10 beta build, and the original bug report has been incorrectly moved to the Resolved Bugs section. This issue is still occurring with the live Sim Update 10 build.
