Modes don't set these variables; users do.

setq-default sets the default value, and that default value will be in
effect in every new buffer, unless someone -- you -- changes the value
in that buffer.  Since you want the same different value in all
buffers, you will probably not set the value in individual buffers,
and thus the default which you changed with setq-default will stay in
