Startpage was the default SE?

i don’t remember setting startpage as default SE, i never heard of it until Brave. if startpage was the default why does Brave recommend duckduckgo? https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360018266171-Why-search-with-DuckDuckGo-

@Water users have an option to set their own SE when they open Brave for the first time – welcome tour.

And it’s also easy to change your SE – anytime. https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017479752-How-do-I-set-my-default-search-engine-
