GRUB_SAVEDEFAULT is set in /etc/default/grub, exported by
/usr/sbin/grub-mkconfig and used by /usr/lib/grub/grub-mkconfig_lib.

The only way that I have been able to make the last menu selection
stick is with /usr/sbin/grub-set-default

grub-set-default <menu_entry_number>

If you want to default to the 2nd menu entry:
grub-set-default 1
(the count starts at 0)
