only on un-mute

Actually, it seems like the System Prefs app launches when you "opt / un-mute", but of course, if your sound isn't already muted then you'd have to press mute twice.

Actually any sound key

Actually, this works with any of the three volume keys, up, down, or mute. But I think your observation stands - it launches when it "un-mutes".

On my G4 466 it works on one press of the mute button (opt-mute), or either the volume up or volume down keys. Same thing, just a single press while holding option.

I believe this was meant to bring up the sound preferences... I remember using this shortcut on OS 9 on the G4 400 at work.
