Is there a little mark under it?  That's the 100% volume mark.

This dialog lets you turn the volume beyond 100% (by telling PulseAudio
to amplify the sound in software, which can cause clipping and loss of
quality).

All the other controls (such as volume keys etc.) limit the volume to 100%.

If you need this software amplification, use the sound preferences to
enable it and then don't touch the volume.
