If you change the defaults on in English.lproj, the settings will be migrated into new user accounts. At least it worked for me.

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ AlwaysRestoreSessionAtLaunch -bool false

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ NewWindowBehavior -integer 0

sudo defaults write /System/Library/User\ Template/English.lproj/Library/Preferences/ HomePage -string “”
