Yes, more or less, though to be precise it's not so much default per se 
as inherited.

As Jacque noted yesterday, values italized in the Inspector are 
inherited, where the control being inspected has not had that value set.

Many visual properties are inherited, including textFont and textSize, 
in a scheme more or less conforming to the inheritance path of messages.

In your case it seems the textSize value is inherited from the card.

If you want a consistent font and size for all cards in a stack, clear 
any such card properties and set them in the stack.
