$volume doesn't seem to do anything

I think I'm remembering this right.
$volume <the alias> <volume>
It doesn't seem to have any effect. I don't get any errors either.

Are you trying to make the volume louder? Because if so, yes, it won't do anything- that's intentional.

No, lower.

I'm trying a new mod and the pain sounds are too loud. I went in and added

$volume PlayerPainSmall 0.5

Here's the default sounds
$random PlayerPainSmall {PLAPSM1 PLAPSM2 PLAPSM3 PLAPSM4 PLAPSM5 PLAPSM6 PLAPSM7 PLAPSM8 PLAPSM9 PLAPSM10 PLAPSM11 PLAPSM12}

I tried 0.1 as well, no dice.

What happens if you add it to each actual alias individually, instead of adding it to the $random alias? (i.e., "$volume PLAPSM1 0.5", "$volume PLAPSM2 0.5", and so on)

Nope.

This isn't the first time this has come up. I was talking with PillowBlaster about a year ago and we couldn't figure it out either.

I thought maybe the player class was calling the sound directly but it's not.
