You got it right.
Remember first there were *only* Job attributes in IPP (no Document
object) and much later there were Document attributes. And the word
"default" got conscripted into service in admittedly a very different
meaning (not pre-configured by an Admin but submitted by a Client).
A clarifying paragraph that contrasts these two uses of "default"
(i.e., apples and camels) would be a worthwhile errata to this spec.
