Each layout is different. The root of layouts that use a charset is {{org.apache.logging.log4j.core.layout.AbstractStringLayout}}
and the default there is UTF-8.

Each layout that extends {{org.apache.logging.log4j.core.layout.AbstractStringLayout}} can
provide its own default.

I've added the following to the layouts page:
{code:xml}
        <p>
          The root class for layouts that use a Charset is <code>org.apache.logging.log4j.core.layout.AbstractStringLayout</code>

          where the default there is UTF-8. Each layout that extends <code>org.apache.logging.log4j.core.layout.AbstractStringLayout</code>

          can provide its own default. See each layout below.
        </p>
{code}

Which specific layout are you talking about?

> https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-255 states that the default charset is the
system default (a fact I confirmed by running local tests). http://logging.apache.org/log4j/2.x/manual/layouts.html
incorrectly states that the default charset is UTF-8.
> Please update the documentation to state that the default is the system default and strongly
recommend (in bold) that the user sets an explicit charset.
