Thanks. The big surprised isn't that they aren't set, it's that I was
talking COMPLETE rubbish - and have been using it :( - when I said
that '"sudo -L" lists the full list of "Defaults"'.

I've just re-read the sudoers man page (after a VERY long time),
thinking that it would help me "refudiate" the fact that the
"Defaults" line had some in-built, unlisted defaults, when in fact,
I've been misusing "sudo -L" for more years than I care to remember...

Thanks for the correction!
