I've tested the following soundchips and drivers:

 * Crystal CX4235 (snd_mss, FreeBSD/i386)
 * Creative Soundblaster Vibra16S (CT2800, snd_sb16, FreeBSD/i386)
 * AvanceLogic ALS4000a (snd_als4000, FreeBSD/i386)
 * ESS ES1869 (snd_ess, FreeBSD/i386)
 * Crystal CS4231A (snd_mss, FreeBSD/pc98)
 * Creative Soundblaster16 for PC-9800 (CT2720, snd_sb16, FreeBSD/pc98)

and SiS 7012 + YAMAHA YMF753 (snd_ich, FreeBSD/i386).

There is no difference in the behavior.
