Digirig pulseaudio and disregard

When I hotplug the digirig into a port, the pulseaudio system, automatically changes the default output for the system to it. I don’t want that.

So, I looked it up, and I know that I can disable ( load-module module-switch-on-port-available),
that from happening, or have pulse audio ignore the device completeely.

My question is, if I do either one of those, will the device still be accessable in the dropdown lists and available for use, for say fldigi and wsjt-x?
