~\CMSModules\PortalEngine\UI\WebParts\Properties\WebPart_PropertiesBefore.xml

Step 3: Modify the Container field and add the following attribute:

defaultvalue="{%currentsite.sitename%}.Default"
The macro resolves the sitename of the current site when the web part and widget properties dialog are opened resulting in the selection of a default web part container:
