I'm sorry, unfortunately there is no such feature in Ecwid yet, to set a default value for your date picker option. But you can express your opinion within the related idea's discussion. Your opinion is the great values for us.

As a workaround, you can try to request the delivery date information from your customers.

Ecwid has a tool that allows you to ask the customer for additional information during checkout. You can enable this feature in your control panel (System → General → Cart → Order Comments) and allow your customers to write notes and add specific information to their orders. After orders are placed they will display as notes in the backend.

This feature can be used to collect any specific information or considerations that your customers would like to attach to an order. Particularly, they can put there preferred delivery time (as a plain text).

Also, please refer to the following article:

Please, let us know if you have any questions.
We already use the plain text field to gather delivery notes.

The point is that you have a setting to set the delivery date picker as a required option but this does not work as the date picker sets the current date by default and therefore customers are not alerted to the fact that they have not selected a date fromn the date picker, they can proceed to checkout without selecting a date, therefore the "required" option is failing.
