The default timeout is set by the default-action-timeout property, and
the default value is 20s.

You are correct, the timeout values defined in the resource agent are
not used automatically. They are recommended minimums, and the
thought as I understand it (this predates my involvement in HA) is that
any timeouts need to be reviewed carefully by the administrator.

I agree that it is somewhat surprising.
