Sorry, I do not get your point.
1. The signal that you loopback to the corresponding input is the output signal, this level you can see at the HW Output.
2. The input signal from a connected device is shown on the HW input and can be routed to any output.
Side note: at the other output you can use loopback it again to record it.
So the analog signal from connected devices is not lost....
Best practise is anyway to use channels for loopback, that are not being used (ADAT, AES, MADI).
Its only a special case that software is so braindamaged to accept audio only from AN1/2 instead of providing all available ports to choose from.

1st of all, the purpose of loopback is to be able to read/record an output signal (submix) without external cables to an HW input. This saves a) cables, b) ports.
Next. No signal ist lost, the audio input of connected devices is being displayed on the HW input.
There it can still be used / routed to another output/submix and if you should need to record this particular one, use loopback again. As I said such trickeries are not required of you use ports for loopback that are otherwise not in use.
For this reason I say its always good to have some ports as a reserve ... either for other connections or ... loopback.
If you need a certain submix on other HW outputs additionally, well then simply provide this submix to these other ports.
TM FX even supports you here by the functions to copy or permanently clone a certain submix.
