At this time, if you set up a Default Value for a field upon creation of a Hosted Feature Service, you have to delete and re-create the field to remove the default value.

Please allow the functionality to re-configure the Default Value of a field post hoc.

The workaround is to access the REST interface as the admin.  I haven't tried this yet but examining the json code I can see that there are multiple places where the default appears and it would need to be changed everywhere it appears.

Here is the workaround I was given:
