This means that kernel should not export any led class device. Or when
exported, then "set" operation should always fail.

This looks like a good candidate to use led "trigger" interface. Create
a mute trigger and attach it to that led device.
I hope that this is what Pavel means.

DSDT helped. Thanks!
Function with "EC.LED" name is self explaining and also "EC.HKEY". I
used acpi_call.ko for debugging and here are results how to control
these two leds on ThinkPad T480s:
Method (MMTG, 0, NotSerialized)
Local0 = 0x0101
Local0 |= 0x00010000
Method (MMTS, 1, NotSerialized)
ElseIf (Arg0 == 0x02)
\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC.LED (0x0E, 0x80)
ElseIf (Arg0 == 0x03)
\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC.LED (0x0E, 0xC0)
\_SB.PCI0.LPCB.EC.LED (0x0E, 0x00)
Method (GSMS, 1, NotSerialized)
Return (\AUDC (0x00, 0x00))
Method (SSMS, 1, NotSerialized)
Return (\AUDC (0x01, (Arg0 & 0x01)))
Method (SHDA, 1, NotSerialized)
Local0 = Arg0
If ((OSYS >= 0x07DF) && (Local0 == 0x01))
Local0 = 0x02
Return (\AUDC (0x02, (Local0 & 0x03)))
Method (AUDC, 2, NotSerialized)
Return (SMI (0x14, 0x07, Arg0, Arg1, 0x00))
MMTS controls mic mute led. When Arg0 is 0x02 then mic mute led is
turned on. When it is 0x03 then it starts blinking. And otherwise is
turned off. MM in name probably means MicMute and S as set. I guess that
MMTG (G as get) would return capabilities as it returns constant.

SSMS controls mute led. It calls some SMI method via AUDC. When Arg0 has
first bit set to one then mute led is turned on. When set to zero then
is turned off. GSMS takes one parameter, but ignores it. When mute led
is turned off then it returns 0x100. When mute led is turned on then it
return 0x101. So looks like that "G" in GSMS means "get" and "S" in SSMS
means set. What is SHDA doing, I have not figured out. It does not
change GSMS result nor led status. When called with argument 1..10 then
it returns always returned 0x0 except for 3 and 7 it returned
0x80000000. There is no blinking support (or at least I have not figured
