You are still looking at these from the same perspective you were
yesterday.  Let me restate this one (hopefully last) time:

Your assumption is that the default and chosen triplets must/should be
one and the same.  They are not, they need not be, and we are far from
being alone in this regard.  Once you accept *that*, then the rest of
this will make sense.  Further insistence that they should be is
counter-productive at this point.
