Kodi is setting my TV's volume to max. (when using

Short version : when using my LG tv as external player, kodi forces its volume setting on my TV. I need kodi to stop doing this.

I am using kodi on a Raspberry under Raspberry OS. I never use Kodi's internal volume control because I have so many devices hooked up to my TV, I just set every single one of them to about 90% and use the tv's remote. That works fine with Kodi's internal video player.

But I prefer use BOTH kodi's own player (among other reasons to use automatic searching for subtitles) and my TV's video player because it just looks better and I get to use the full power of the remote. But whenever I use the 'play using..' LGTV feature, it takes the kodi volume setting, which, as I explained is preferably set to almost 100% and sends it to my TV, which is normally at around 12% for a comfortable level.

Can I stop Kodi from doing this? I can see how this is a useful feature in most external player scenarios, just not when using a smart TV's own player. I am surprised kodi can even use the LG WebOS player, it is really cool, but it's just not flawless right now.

I literally had a movie playing at 100% volume at 5 AM in the morning, waking up the whole neighbourhood because I forgot to check the volume level after using the internal video player. Neither my pet, wife and heart are happy with me.
