When creating a component you can only set the component lead. When you are requesting components you get an assignee besides the component lead, like it's documented in JIRA REST API (https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/server/#api/2/component-createComponent). So what's the purpose of this attribute? Do component lead and assignee always have the same value?
It returns the real default assignee. When you choose a component on the issue creation screen the default assignee will be set. When you create a component you can set several choices for the default assignee: PROJECT_LEAD, COMPONENT_LEAD, UNASSIGNED. The Rest will return you the real name of the default assignee
