This "default" value is basically only used in fundamental-mode.

This is probably in a buffer using some other mode than fundamental-mode.
Do C-h v in the buffer that you care about to see the value it has in
this particular buffer.  The default (i.e. global) value is about as good
as never used (in Emacs-CVS this default value is changed to reflect the
more common setting corresponding to text-mode).
