Missing DNA Defaults ("Reset to Default Value" sets to 0)
Confirmed, NormalPublicTO DO


Since rBf5e0dfe59c7e748, we have a simple & practical way of setting up defaults for DNA data. These defaults are used for the "Reset to Default Value" operator, available in the context menu for buttons.
Here's a helper script to extract the defaults:

There are still a number of properties that don't have a default assigned. These can be reported here.

Note that these missing defaults typically appear in "groups" because the entire data-structure misses the default value definition. In that case there's no need to list each individual value, just mention where they are (e.g. Armature object, relation settings).

In the render properties tab, i think that Simplify is missing Default values for render and grease pencil dropdowns. Also Cycles tile sizes differ from startup file value after resetting.
In Output Properties tab it defaults output color to BW instead of RGB.
In Scene Properties tab it's missing default value for Units.
In Object Properties tab it's missing for Relations and Motion Paths.
It's also missing default values for constraints.

All the sockets (including RGBA sockets, dropdowns, etc) default to 0.000 (or first element in the list¹) in all the nodes.

¹Only excepton I've found is that, in ColorRamp, interpolation correctly defaults to "Linear"

Edit: Maybe the issue with nodes is based on a different root cause, so probably this is not the right Task? See also: T76704
