If you see the Jukebox as a small computer device running the
application software Rockbox then you're right.
If you see Jukebox+Rockbox as a music playing device then it's
bad enough that it does not have dedicated volume keys. People
should not need to look at the LCD and check if they're at
the right screen so they know what keys they must press to
increase or reduce the volume. Even computer geeks must rest
