I’m not sure why this is not working for you. I just created a new field called ‘Test New Field’ (text) and added it to the options page via the location rules.
This field had a default value of ‘Test default’
I opened the options page and the default value ‘Test default’ loaded into the input.
I then saved the field and it saved with the default value correctly.
Looking at my wp_options table, I noticed that the option_name is actually ‘options_test_new_field’, so the options page add-on saves with a prefix of ‘options_’.
Perhaps this explains why you could not find a value previously.
Looks like it’s working correctly for me, hope you can get it to work.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
