defaultscale sets the size of the metapost font. It does not affect typeset labels.
Try this to see:
defaultscale := 6;
label(btex Hallo $\sum$ etex, origin);
But I cannot be much help on how to change the size of typeset labels as I have trouble there too. Seems like putting latex commands inside btex ... etex should work, I have seen files where it does, but it does not (yet) for my installation.
Also, if you make a preamble like...
...you can change the font of typeset labels by using a package.
I think some of this is involved in the changes the team are making.
