The default menu item id is for routing detail views of events.
For example you have the following menue:
Main Page (id:1) - Events Simplelist (id:2) - ...
On the main page you have a basic module showing events. If you set up the default menu item id to 2 and now click in the basic modul on the event "Testevent" you will be routed to <url>/eventssimplelist/event/<eventid>-testevent. So it is more SEO compatible then without the configured default menu item id because the event from Main Page -> Basic Module -> Testevent has the same url as Events Simplelist -> Testevent.
If you do not have set up the default menu item the url from the basic module to the event would look like <url>/component/jem/event/<eventid>-testevent. So the same event has two different urls:
Main Page -> Basic Module: <url>/component/jem/event/<eventid>-testevent and
