Yes, the defaults for each parameter are in your mount man page.
logbsize=256K is higher than the default, which is 32K for any system with
over 32MB RAM. logbufs=8 will be the default if your blocksize is 64K. If
your blocksize is 4K you'll get logbufs=2 by default. This is all in the
XFS section of man mount.
