DEFAULT is assigned at list-creation time.  Thereafter, it's part of the list
object.  It's an attribute called acmin_member_chunksize; you can set it with
withlist -l (see bin/withlist for instructions).  Something like:

cd ~mailman
python -i bin/withlist -l <listname>
m.admin_member_chunksize = 100

would do it.  (The last two aren't really strictly necessary, but I'm paranoid.)
