That seems like one of those "surprising" answers to me and the behaviour obviously surprised you too. Was this on a forum thread or in the documentation? I've raised an enhancement request ticket here to see if we could get an option at least for it to use the default storage for news.

[EDIT] Kovid has closed the ticket indicating the actual behaviour is as follows:

The current behavior is to preferentially send to the main memory as long as the main memory has enough space and only otherwise to send to the location with the most free space.
So you are correct in saying it does not consider the "default" setting for a device, however not quite correct in terms of which storage area it considers first.
