The default reminder time for tasks depends on when the task is created and when its due - tasks created (or flagged) for Today will always default to the reminder at 1 hour before the end of the working day. Tasks due in the future will use the reminder setting in the Tools, options dialog. Screenshot:

Also note how the Reminder dialog behaves: the reminder goes off at the set time but the reminder dialog may say its not 'due' until the end of the day:
