Default [Q] App Notification Sounds are not overriding system default

Nexus 5 - Carbon Rom - Nightly 06092014 (Problem is also persistent in CM11 M7)

I am attempting to set individual notifications for specific apps (Hangouts, Gmail, etc), but for whatever reason, it appears that I am unable to do that.

In Hangouts for example, I have the notification set to "Hangouts Message" but when I view the actual sound setting, it shows, "Default ringtone (Themos)" but the actual notification sound that plays when I receive a message is Argon, which is what I have set as the system default.

This same behavior is consistent with any and all apps that allow you to customize the notification sound.

Is anyone else having this issue, and if so, have you discovered a workaround?
