Default camera settings can't please everyone. The underexsposure is classic Nikon Digital. It's done because there is more image dynamic captured when the image is slightly underexsposed. You'll get aquaited for image dynamics when bringing up the exsposure by image editors. Even more dynamic is available within the image, seen by other image editing steps.
Another benefit of underexsposing is a buffer against blown highlights. Detail in the blown areas are lost.
The EV on the D100 should remeber a preference even after turning off the camera. Uping it +.03 EV or more may be better to one's liking. The + EV will be active in all the camera modes. It isn't too noticable there are few indicators the EV is not set to zero.
Canon default setting is set for more pleasing right out of the camera. A trade off to not capturing the maximum amount of dynamic range.
