I wouldn't rule out the possibility that the titles have changed over time and what was a default position may have suddenly become a custom position when MLS was upgraded.
The problem may have started with a prior clerk. I wouldn't loose any sleep on how it happened, I'd just fix it and avoid creating any positions for common callings. I do remember that many positions were not where we expected to find them, but they were there.
