We don't have logic that would go and update all the custom fields to their default values for the existing entries. I think that this shouldn't be done either. If you already entered some value, or don't have a value at all, this might mean that this is how you want this record to be - with this specific value, or none. I'd rather not create a new issue but extend the existing one.
