I contacted Nokia about the volume and audio-timeout issues. I just received the following reply, but I'm not sure which issue they're referring to. Hopefully both.

Just received the update notification on my TA-1025, 875.1 MB.
I'm going to hold off installing for now to see if others report if 8.1 helps or hurts.
Oreo 8.1 update has fixed this problem for me.
Here in Belgium for my TA-1021 no updates available.
