Happens on all android devices... when you click an option it also says go to settings/apps to restore defaults.. but no such setting exsists.

Same thing happens on my Note 10.1 2014 and my Galaxy S3.

My Nexus 7 2013 does keep the file type default app. The setting to clear out is under the application itself in application manager. You would have to clear the "Launch by default" setting under the application. Obviously this doesn't apply to our device since the default app never saves.
