Storing your calendar in the Clown

Dear Lazyweb,

Can anyone explain to me what the default event alert time actually does on macOS and iOS with iCloud syncing?

What I would like it to mean: "When I create a new event, that event is created with an alert 15 minutes before, instead of needing to add that by hand."

What it seems to actually mean: "If you create an event, even a recurring event, and at any point change the time of that alert, or delete the alert, then the 'default' 15 minute alert is going to show back up anyway, but some random amount of time later, and also only like 70% of the time."

I suspect that if I turned off the default alert on my desktop as well as every other device it would stop re-adding it, but then I would accidentally end up a bunch of events with no alerts at all.
