I'm looking at OOo help right now.  I found a "Basic Fonts" page that
indicates the Writer option is really just a shortcut to change built-in
templates; that's what I figured.  I think you may have to create a new
spreadsheet template with the font you want.  Here are instructions
based on the "Change default template" help page.

1. Create a new spreadsheet document.
2. Change the font (and any other global formatting)
3. Goto File-Templates-Save
4. Choose a name.
5. Click OK.
6. Goto File-Templates-Organize
7. Double-click My Templates.
8. Right-click the new spreadsheet
9. Click Set As Default Template
