Yes, pdftex.def will set it but it is not loaded by the class files.
The LaTeX class files do not contain any driver/engine dependencies.
The paper size is properly set by packages geometry and zwpagelayout.
At least the latter can detect in majority of cases the proper driver
automatically. I have sent you 3 lines. Iy you put them just after
\begin{document}, they will write to the screen and log the settings
of the paper size.
