MuseScore lacks a MIDI panic button similar to what Finale and Sibelius have. Such a button stops all MIDI and SoundFont notes by sending a "note off" message to all keys in all channels.

Notes are occasionally sustained even when playback is stopped, and a panic button would mitigate this.

IMHO there is no real need for such a button, but that " note off" message should rather be sent automatically on every 'stop playback', shouldn't it?
