If not all users on your system had intentionally at least once
done whatever action (run lpoptions, click a [Save Settings] button
in whatever graphical print dialog, whatever else...) which stores
user specific print queue settings, it looks like a bug to me
when whatever software writes user specific print queue settings
without an explicite user request to do so.

In particular when there is a default print queue setting for
every user in his ~/.cups/lpoptions file this should mean
that all users on your system should have done an explicite
request to store a user specific default queue.

You might inspect all ~/.cups/lpoptions files of your users
(at least those which are worldwide readable). If they are
very similar, an automatism which writes them is likely
(or all your users prefer the same user specific settings
which you may then better provide as system defaults ;-)

I do not use a desktop system (only X plus a plain windowmanager)
and I have nothing in ~/.cups/ so that the desktop systems
(KDE and Gnome) are "the usual suspects" which may write stuff
to ~/.cups/lpoptions without having an user request to do so.
