I just tried a vanilla copy of version 3.0.4 and it is not changing the default. I'll work backwards and figure out which version the problem started.

Edit: Jumped to a 3.0.0 vanilla copy and it's not functioning there either.

I was able to recreate the problem on a test board. The user 'Anonymous' in the Guests group is storing a value in the user_style field that does not get overwritten depending on the permissions 'Anonymous' is assigned. By removing Guest access to the forums completely, meaning they cannot see or access the forums without logging in, the variable was updated upon the next access and 'Anonymous' was shown the correct default style.

Well it will only last until the next time you change board default in ACP. The fastest way to reset the style assigned is to edit the database directly.
**edit to add easier way for noobs**
In your ACP -> Users & Groups -> Manage Users -> Select Anonymous user (check box) Submit then select form: Preferences and change the "My board style" and apply.
