The default gateway route is installed at boot time by a separate
'route' command. 'ifconfig' can derive your subnet route from the
address and mask of the interface, but it can't magically determine
your default gateway. Add it yourself using "route" or "ip" or rerun
your network start scripts.

In short, "Working as Designed".
