Thank you for checking, but I’m unclear on what you have confirmed….
Are you saying that with Portuguese specific version of Windows Server 2012/2016 that Portuguese (or international) versions of Microsoft Office and other MS softwares all default to A4 without issue; and, when using US/English versions of Windows Server 2012/2016 and US/English or international versions of that the same softwares default to Letter?
Or are you saying that in your testing that Portuguese versions of Windows or other MS software is always defaulting to A4?
Any discrepancy in the coding of this default setting would be specific to the software. The traditional way is to write the software to be responsive to the locale by querying the default printer’s driver to provide the page size setting, and if that fails or there is no default printer installed, to rely on the Windows current culture setting and default to Letter only for US-English and A4 everywhere else. This only happens upon installation and from that point forward it is usually under user control. Long ago, printers used fan-fold perf paper and the setting was even more important than it is today, especially for business forms, invoices, etc. So professional international softwares usually tried to default to the appropriate page size. That standard has endured in most softwares, but perhaps not necessarily in new software; at least not until someone points it out.

I have tested on multiple vm now and a couple of 2012 and 2016 servers in our dc with none of these issues including one server in Portuguese
