Why are the default settings never set to default, even after a clean install?

Running XP Pro, single user. All updates, anti-virus, anti spyware etc..
I have been pondering this question for about a year now.
Why is it when I first set up my Local Security Configerations and Analysis, or Local Security settings the default settings, as per Microsoft, in help, are never set to the default settings?
Example: Under Local Security Policy/User rights the following few wxamples are already set.
Adjust memory quotas for a process. Default setting is Local System. Mine is set for Local Service and Netwrok Service
Generate Security Audits: Local System. Mine is set for Network Service and Local Service
Log on as a service. Default setting is none. Mine is set for Netwrok Service
I know how to change them, I am just very interested as to why they are not at deafault? Is this OK? Normal?
There are others too, Like Create a page file, Create a token object,
