Hmm, how did you find out?
Which docking station (link to specs)?
It is true that some hardware is crippled, but also some converters
are simply omitting the audio.

The whole enchilada of video/audio links (DVI/HDMI/DP) and all their
versions and revisions is one of the biggest standard messes around.

BTW, consider the analog way if you are feeding the audio into a TV
(=stereo): just add an extra cable from the sound card to the video in
of the TV (some have special input next to the HDMI for that purpose).
