XP has been the default since Wine 1.1.16, as far as I can tell.

No, if you've changed a setting, then it's considered a user override,
and saved in the registry as such. An upgrade won't remove that
override. Without an override, though, the new default probably would
have taken effect after the upgrade. I think most of these overrides
would be stored in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine, if you prefer to
remove them.
