That's the default for certificate preferences (the preferences that get
placed on a newly-generated certificate). That's not the same thing as
the default personal-*-preferences.
They may be the same, they may be different -- but internally to GnuPG,
they are two different sets of preferences, so you can't point to
certificate preferences and say "this is what's used as default

If I did, I was absolutely in error to do so, and you should've known
better than to believe me!
I like TWOFISH for reasons that are pretty much irrelevant here. It's
enough to say that I think TWOFISH is a better choice for me. Those
last two words are important. My reasons probably don't apply to you.
After all -- you're not me.
Further, I'm not a cryppie. I don't know where people get the idea that
I am one. A decade ago in graduate school I did some graduate-level
work with cryptologic research, but I haven't kept current since then.
Nobody should trust the judgment of an ex-cryppie who hasn't kept
current over the judgment of the professional cryptologic community.
*Nobody*. If you think my commentary on cryptology is interesting, I'm
happy. If you think it's definitive, you're wrong. :)
