Is their a configuration option that needs to be set so defaults knows what

'defaults' is a gnustep tool to manipulate gnustep defaults, by using sogo.conf, you are moving away from those.

Configuration should be done by hand, in sogo.conf only.
The content of that file is quite sensitive, so sogo:sogo 600 is the preferred mode for it.
