Notification jingle rings on exit from silent mode ?

Starting with the recently updated MIUI v.12.0.1 there is a bad (to me) new feature.
WHEN I EXIT FROM THE SILENT MODE MY MI 8 PHONE STARTS RINGING THE NOTIFICATION ALERT.
It's quite disturbing, even more if you are in a public space. And it's uninterruptible!
The only solution I've found so far is reducing the volume to the minimum value, and restore it immediately after.
It's a big problem because my notification alert is rather long.
Is there a way to restore the previous behaviour and keep the phone silent when I change audio mode?
Thanks in advance to all who give advice to solve this inconvenience.

Maybe this: Settings > Sound & vibration > Additional settings > Unmute sound >>> disable it by toggling

Yes MeiGuddet, that's just the setting I need to solve that problem.
But on My Mi 8 that setting isn't there.
I attach a screen shot with the settings in the "Settings > Sound & vibration > Additional settings" window.
Do you know an alternative way to set that flag ?
I hope it is available on my phone. Are you sure it is ?

Thank you very much for your attention
Best,
Giovanni

Maybe. More than a features it seems a nuisance, for who chooses long and loud notification rings as I'm used to do.
Dear MelGuddet, are you aware of a setting tool I can use to revert to the old behavior ?
Kind of an app to uncover these intricacies deeply buried in the MIUI ?
Or a way to notify some developers at Xiaomi and ask for a fast fix or a workaround ?
TIA
