XF 1.5 default_watch_state after import

After importing from vB3.x, only few users in Xenforo have set a dafualt_watch_state. Around 220 (out of 35k users) have set it to "watch_email" and only 20 have it set to "watch_no_amail". All others have it empty.

What does this mean within Xenforo, please? If they write to a thread they do not automatically watch the thread?
What is the default state in Xenforo, when not importing date, please?

Should I fill the database column with "watch_no_email" for all empty users? ;)

If it's empty, they won't watch threads they create or reply to. Otherwise they'll watch with an appropriate option over receiving emails.

This would be configured in the user registration options.

Should I fill the database column with "watch_no_email" for all empty users?
I'd say no, because this is likely a value we imported explicitly. Though you can override it if you prefer.
