/etc/defaults/periodic.conf has all the default values for periodic.

Defaults as a reference, or the defaults that are currently enforced even
without /etc/periodic.conf?

Yes, to both. The two aren't exclusive.

 You should _NOT_ endit /etc/defaults/periodic.conf ... the point is
that /etc/periodic.conf overrides those defaults.

So, in theory, IF (which I won't, don't worry) I did edit the /etc/defaults/periodic.conf, and disabled the postfix & sendmail specified settings, those changes would be enforced even without a /etc/periodic.conf?

Sure. But your changes might get blown away the next time you updated the system and ran mergemaster, unless you were careful. Putting the changes in /etc/periodic.conf is the right thing to do...
