Default values are not saved #4600

I know that configured default values in field definitions are not saved to database, they are only used to preset a field's value in the GUI
But why is this the case? Also in #3853 (comment) this fact is cited - but what is the reason for this?

By not saving default values to the database a lot of problems arise, e.g. the value does not appear in exports. When you then open the object to check if the value really has not been set, it gets even more confusing because there the default value gets applied.

  • only for create, not on update. otherwise there is no way to null it out anymore.
  • if inheritance is enabled and there is no parent value then take the default value.
  • if inheritance is disabled, take the default value.
