But when navigating to any other site in the portal, the layout is
In essence, I am lead to believe that the various default.aspx pages
from the subsites in the portal take their layout from a different page.

It depends on whether the template you are using to create the subsite
is using publishing or not. Check the URL of the default page  on the
subsite. If the url contains something like .../pages/default.aspx then
you are using a publishing subsite and you can check in site  settings to
see if it is inheriting layouts from the top level site. If it is it
should be using defaultlayout.aspx. If the url is just
.../default.aspx then the site is using a default.aspx file that is
either ghosted from the site definition for the site in the 12 hive or
has been modified using SharePoint Designer. Either way it does not
depend on the defaultlayout.aspx. You would need to edit that page
