Ok, that means they're working.
Thing about a default value is that you only want to default it on issue creation.
During an issue edit, there is an existing setting for a field, even if that setting is "empty". The users have deliberately chosen that value, and you do not want to have a default override it. So default settings only apply on "create issue"
You don't really want to do it - that's why Jira doesn't do it.
If your users leave a field blank at creation time, then why would you encourage them to accidentally set it during an edit? It's blank for a reason.
If you do this, you'll find a LOT of your issues suddenly have defaults splattered all over them when you REALLY don't want it.
