Toby, In my case I found this issue when trying to work around a bug in aNag v1.5.8 (Nagios monitoring app). Where it did not respect setting the notification ringtone to silent. I reported this issue to the aNag developer and he stated: "I didn't handle the difference between "not configured" and "configured to nothing" so I used the default notification sound in both cases." He has fixed this bug in v1.5.9.
My workaround until the aNag bug was fixed was to set the system wide notification ringtone to "silent". Every reboot of the phone would set my system wide notification ringtone back to "Join Hangout". I suspected the Google+ app was to blame so I uninstalled it, and my system wide notification ringtone has been on silent ever since.
