Does the Restore Defaults button remove it, I wonder?

> As every time I install a new version of TeXworks, I've started by removing ~/Library/TeXworks before launching the new TeXworks for the first time, so that a virginal TeXworks folder is recreated with updated defaults if the defaults have changed. (I merge my local changes -- only additional processing tools -- back afterwards.) Could this play a role here?

I don't think so; I think you have the binary paths stored as part of the prefs file, which is separate from the various configuration files. Preferences are stored in a .plist file in ~/Library/Preferences/. If you were to delete that, I'm guessing you'd lose the /usr/texbin path.

(Not at my texworks machine right now, to actually experiment...)
