ALSA mixer values
There are some other laptops/harwdare which let you activate both the Speakers and the Headphones at the same time, since it's a software configuration.* The ones I've seen show the same behaviour you state under Windows, but when under Linux, plugging in the Headphone jack does not mute the laptop speakers.* On other hardware, such as my laptop, when the headphone jack is detected, the speaker output is muted automatically (there is no "Front" or similar Alsamixer value to tweak).

No, since this is a hardware feature of any thinkpad. And yes, the Y way
is your solution.
