The config file variables are always called debian-branch and
upstream-branch. We only have the --git-* prefix on the commandline of
"gbp buildpackge" to distinguish our options from options passed to the
builder (this was inspired by svn-buildpackage back then).

So if 

[DEFAULT]
debian-branch = <whatever>

does not work this would be a bug. I don't see this here though. I
e.g. have

[DEFAULT]
upstream-branch=upstream/sid
debian-branch=debian/sid

in debian/gbp.conf of e.g. libvirt without problems.

$ gbp config buildpackage.debian-branch
buildpackage.debian-branch=debian/sid

$ gbp buildpackage --help | grep -A 2  -e  --git-debian-branch
    --git-debian-branch=DEBIAN_BRANCH
                        Branch the Debian package is being developed on,
                        default is 'debian/sid'

(both command run from within the repo that has the
debian/gbp.conf). And outside of that repo:

$ gbp config buildpackage.debian-branch
buildpackage.debian-branch=master

The code did not change recently so I really wonder what could trigger
this on your end? Are you overriding branch names in a

[buildpackage]

section as well?

Cheers,
