The OnNewRecord event doesn't flag the row in the buffer as Modified, so
the dataset at this stage may "know" what values will be written. Once the
datalink updates the dataset, the lookup dataset should respond appropriately.

I'm not sure exactly when the datalink fires the buffer update, but try
putting your default-assignment code on the AfterInsert handler instead....
