Since the snapping refactoring, snapping is always active upon QGIS launch, even though I set the snapping default to Off.

Looking into the code, I see this line as checking whether snapping should be enabled or not:

 bool enabled = QSettings().value( QStringLiteral( "/qgis/digitizing/default_advanced_snap_enabled" ), true ).toBool();

The "default_advanced_snap_enabled" setting is however never set in QgsOptions, neither anywhere else in QGIS' source tree.

Similarly, the code uses "default_snap_type" as its setting key for snapping type (i.e. vertex, segment, vertexandsegment):

SnappingType type = ( SnappingType )QSettings().value( QStringLiteral( "/qgis/digitizing/default_snap_type" ), Vertex ).toInt();

However, QgsOptions never sets the "default_snap_type" value.
