You should be able to create "default device profiles" for other phone models like 7941's and 7961's, have a look;
With Cisco CallManager 4.0 or later, you configure a clusterwide device profile default for each model of Cisco IP Phone that you want to support Cisco CallManager Extension Mobility. The phone takes on the device profile default whenever a user logs in to a phone model for which the user has no user device profile.
To add a device profile default for a phone model, perform the following procedure.
Step 5 At the Phone Button Template field, choose the appropriate phone button template. The phone button template determines the configuration of the softkeys on Cisco IP Phones. Leave this field blank if the device pool contains the assigned softkey template.
Step 6 If the phone model supports the Cisco IP Phone Expansion Module 7914, Cisco CallManager displays the expansion module field.
a. At the Module 1 drop-down list box choose one or zero 7914 14-button expansion module.
b. At the Module 2 drop-down list box, choose one or zero 7914 14-button expansion module.
Step 7 To configure Multilevel Precedence and Preemption (MLPP) information:
That is a database query that is being presented back, you won't be able to change the presentation of this. It will provide back whatever your version of CallManager supports, the top most phone type is 7960.
Now if this isn't answering your question please explain this further. I'm assuming you aren't actually speaking of the Device Profile Default tab but actually the Device Profile->Add a New User Device Profile.
Rob, definitely points for the post above for the effort and in-depth description of adding device defaults.
I'm really struggling to see the problem here and think we have miscommunication on what you are trying to accomplish. When you add a new Device Profile it doesn't default to a specific type, meaning it doesn't populate a button template or set device specific settings. The only thing it does is have by default in the Device Type drop down list 'Cisco 7960'. I guess it would be annoying if the only thing you were adding is 7940s but it is really an uncommon request.
Now as far as detecting device specific settings, CCM does. That is what the Default Device Profiles. These will be used if you log into a IP Phone that you don't have a specific individual user device profile for.
Here is the documenation blurb on it.
Use the device profile default for whenever a user logs on to a phone model for which no user device profile exists. To create a device profile default for each phone model that supports Cisco Extension Mobility, use the Device Profile Default Configuration window. The maximum number of device profile defaults cannot exceed the number of phone models that support Cisco CallManager Extension Mobility.
For example, a user logs on to a Cisco IP Phone model 7960, for which there is a user device profile. The user device profile for the user gets downloaded to the phone to which the user logged on. Later, the same user logs on to a Cisco IP Phone model 7940, for which he does not have a user device profile. In this case, the device profile default for the model 7940 gets downloaded to the phone.
A device profile default comprises the set of attributes (services and/or features) that are associated with a particular device. Device profiles include device type, user locale, phone button template, softkey template, multilevel precedence and preemption (MLPP) information, and Cisco IP Phone services.
Really hope this helps and again sorry for the confusion.

The short answer is that you don't.... That isn't entirely true while at
the same time it kind of is, but for the most part you don't configure
the softkeys. You enable or disable them via TCL. Here is the long
