I'm not sure, but it seemed to me that default_variants was not a variable that gets appended to or deleted from, but is a command that, when executed, appends (or maybe prepends) the given variants to the selected variants. I don't know why it behaves that way, it's just what I observed.

If the port already has bits in it that append to default_variants, then I don't know why that works either.
