If I add obsoletes and requires for all possible pulseaudio packages, that
will be a fulltime job. Sorry, if SuSE is propagating standards and don't act
and package their packages after these standards, I don't see the necessity
to change my package layout.
Perhaps you should file a bug on bugzilla for changing the package-layout of
the pulseaudio packages according to the SuSE-Shared-Library Policy.

No, not at all. I won't follow "old wrong package layouts".

No it doesn't, see details of the Shared Library Policy:
The simplest solution for you: delete all pulseaudio packages and reinstall
the packman packages.
And if you mixed up your system with packages from the build-system, you are
expienced enough to do so.
And to use pulseaudio, it is not needed to install the devel-packages.
