I just created a test in 2.3.4 and the request defaults setting is
used by the sampler, as it is with 2.4.

I suspect the behavioural change is because you have more than one
request default in the test plan; 2.4 did change how multiple defaults
are handled.

For all the request default fields, there's no way to "reset" the
value in the sampler - if the sampler field is empty, then the default
(if any) is used.

Yes, it does need documenting, but not quite as you suggest.
