Hole Wizard countersinks do not come from standard

Can somebody explain where the initial settings for countersinks on Hole Wizard holes come from?  For instance, if I pick a tapped Helicoil #4-40 hole, under the Options tab, Near Side countersink was initially checked, with a diameter of 0.1973in and and degree of 120.  However, from the Toolbox Settings tool, I can see that the standard Countersink Diameter for a #4-40 Helicoil hole is 0.17.  If I manually change the value when creating a hole, it remembers it if I immediately create another #4-40, but forgets again as soon as I create a different size hole.  Where is Hole Wizard getting these values from, and how can I make it pull values from the standard?  (Bonus question, how do I change the countersink angle, and whether near/far side countersinks are created in the standard?)
