I was trying to figure it out for so long, I troubleshooted every single part, and it turns out the culprit is extremely simple. Solus ships a really old Snap version of 2.39 and support of audio-playback was introduced in 2.40. So only apps that support deprecated pulseaudio interface will have sound, while newer like Teams-Insiders will not.
Check, maybe your app will still have sound, but to fix the core problem we will have to wait for T8609 to be resolved by the Core Team.

as @Jacek mentioned is due our bit out of date snap version, which waits till we can ship cgroupsv2 as default.
