Per the explanation at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/compliancemanagement/thread/0d853d44-f0b5-422b-9f10-e5d88ae6ffbc/ :

""Default" is the default value for the setting in a pristine installation of the OS or application. "Microsoft" is the value prescribed by our team in the Microsoft-provided baselines available in SCM. "Customized" is the value you and your colleagues have prescribed in your own custom baselines. In other words, the "Customized" colun only has significance when you are working on custom baselines."
