Default can be used with named exports, and therefore does not indicate
that a module is single export. And you can make a single export module by
exporting a single named export. Therefore there is no correlation between
default and single exporting modules.

The default import is a useful syntactic sugar, but the default export does
not map well with it, especially because rather than saving keystrokes it
is (potentially) longer to use than a named export.
