That's what I'd been thinking, too. Because of your question, I just
tried a search for...

"defaults,rw" /etc/fstab

Some things pulled up from varying resources out there. Without
actually visiting any of the results, sometimes they just said the
above. Other times, they would have "defaults,rw" with a few of the
various remaining options tacked on the end of that, as well.
