FreeIPA installer doesn't touch 'default' domain section at all. It
always operates on the section named 'domain/<domain name>'.

Actually, that does not seem what I experience.

On RHEL 6.7 and RHEL 7.2, I've tried to start with sssd.conf

        autofs_provider = ldap
        cache_credentials = True
        ldap_search_base = dc=old,dc=domain
        id_provider = ldap

I tried ipa-server-install and I tried ipa-client-install. In both
cases, the resulting sssd.conf had the [domain/default] section
removed. So something in the process seems to care about that section
-- maybe not the installer, maybe authconfig or something else.
If sssd.conf exists, IPA installer (ipa-client-install) will back the
file up. If there is a clash in config, it will start a fresh because
you anyway have a backup copy.

On the other hand, I was not able to reproduce the chaneg to the
content of the domain/default section that lejeczek reports. I guess
we will need more detailed steps to reproduce, including the exact
original sssd.conf and versions of relevant packages.
I suspect somebody ran authconfig separately to configure some options
and it ruined sssd.conf.
