You're looking at the wrong place: the .Xdefaults file has never been
a startup file. But it's now ".Xdefaults-<hostname>". See X(7) man
This must point to a file containing X resources. The default is
$HOME/.Xdefaults-<hostname>. Unlike $HOME/.Xresources, it is
consulted each time an X application starts.
And you can check with strace that this file is read...
But I prefer to use the app-defaults.
