You don't understand.  The init script is invoked on
shutdown to save the mixer settings to a configuration file,
and on bootup to restore them.  So to see it work, you have
to run a mixer to enable sound, make sure the init script
will run on shutdown and bootup, and then reboot.

If you look at the script you should see that it runs
"alsactl save" and "alsactl restore" on shutdown and reboot,
respectively.  "man alsactl" for more info.
