I think it's because the [default] button is implemented by the config dialog, 
which generally reset all widgets to their default value (set by the 
programmer) and doesn't even look the global config file.  

(If it's implemented at all,  there are lot of dialogs where that button 
simply does nothing,  like the help button)
