My hunch is you will find the code in submit.php and in admin/event.php. 
  Submit.php will set teh defaults for moderated events, admin/event.php 
sets up events added by admins.

This should probably be a feature request to http://project.geeklog.net 
to allow admins to set the access defaults not just for events but for 
stories, block, etc through the config file.
