No, I think the default is that of teTeX, which is A4 (as the software
assembled in Germany).
It isn't very hard to get the default setting from the system
defaults read com.apple.print.defaultpapersize DefaultPaperSize
gives "iso-A4" for me. The install script might be able to check for
this and use
it as the default.
